Thomas Harllee Circular Letter, 28 Sept. 1847   
    A gift to SCL Manuscripts Division announced in 2007

| Manuscripts Gifts 2007 | Front Page 2007 | Previous Issues | Friends of the Library |

Printed manuscript, 28 September 1847, circular letter issued by Charleston factor and commission merchant Thomas Harllee "setting forth my views as respects the growing crop, prospects of trade, &c."

The circular comments on weather conditions in the Atlantic and Gulf states that had adversely affected the cotton crop as well as the impact of the economic situation in Europe. The grain crops throughout Great Britain and the Continent were promising, however, and Harllee notes in conclusion: "Our merchants are busily engaged preparing for a large fall business. Any goods wanted by my friends will be carefully laid in at the lowest market prices."
