Letter, 10 December 1868, from D[aniel] H[enry] Chamberlain, Attorney General’s Office (Columbia, S.C.) to John R. Keep, responds to Keep’s communication of 27 November and comments on the Palmetto State’s postwar economic situation during Reconstruction.

State bonds, Chamberlain advises, were rapidly advancing. "Our debt," he continues, "is but little over Five Millions, and we expect to arrange for our interest during the present session of the General Assembly…. The condition of our State is improving very rapidly, and we hope to atone for the past by our loyalty and patriotism in the future."

The letter is in a stenographer’s hand but bears Chamberlain’s signature.
