Letter, 25 September 1861, from J.S. Murray, Camden, S.C., to Messrs. T.J. & P.P. Murray. Business letter from Murray Boswell & Bro., with postscript signed by J.S. Murray, concerns the purchase and shipment of rye and corn whiskey and apple brandy and warns against shipping in barrels with pine heads as it would affect the whiskey’s taste. Murray also requests that tin be nailed over each bung of the brandy to prevent loss during shipment.

The Kirkwood Rangers, he notes, were leaving today for Virginia by way of Concord and Salisbury (North Caorlina), “thay are a fine looking set of men travling in good Stile, introduce yourself to Capt. Wm. M. Shannon who you will find to be a polished gentleman.”
