A gift to SCL Manuscripts Division announced in 2007
Letter, 19 April 1827, of R[ichar]d Taylor, Columbia, South Carolina, to John Ken[n]edy, Chester Court House, South Carolina, forwards John J. Medley’s account current reflecting monies owed Taylor & Co. | Manuscripts Gifts 2007 | Previous Issues | Endowments | Friends of the Library |
Asking that Kennedy call upon Medley and remit the balance due forthwith, he further stipulates: “should he not pay you will hand it to an attorney & direct him to take him with a Bail writ as he promised to pay before he left here & we have wrote him upon the subject.” The account sheet reflects purchases between 13 March and 7 April 1827 of cod fish, indigo, American and Spanish “segars,” and spirituous liquors - cider, claret wine, and cherry bounce.
Richard Taylor’s sworn statement of the same date is attested by justice of the peace A. Brown.
