Letter, 27 September 1794, of Columbia, South Carolina, merchant S[amuel] Green (1767-1837) to his brother, John Green, in Worcester, Massachusetts, expresses hopes that their brother "Timothy & I will be able to do something by and by," although he recognized that "it is a bad chance to begin here without capitol...." Nonetheless, they had "entered the lists and must now do as well as we can."

Samuel sympathizes with the plight of Johnís pregnant wife but reminds him that they would soon be rewarded by the birth of "a fine heir." He also congratulates John on the success of his practice, noting that before long he would "be respected by the most learned in the Profession," and stresses the value of an education, both for his own children and those who might study with him.
