Letter, 26 January 1846, of W.W. Boyce, Winnsboro (Fairfield County, S.C.), to P[eter] Della Torre, Charleston, S.C., announces the letter writer’s intent “to run for the Office of State Reporter” and suggests that “if I could get a good support from the Low Country...I might be elected.”

“I don’t know any one I feel more willing to apply to than yourself in Charleston,” Boyce goes on to say. “I know your influence is very great and if it should not be inconsistent with any engagements on your part I shall feel under obligations to you for any kindness you may be able to afford me....I write you at this early day that you may not be committed by a previous application.”

Perhaps as a way to make the appeal for support in the coming election even more enticing, Boyce hints that Peter Della Torre might enjoy some success if he aspired to the Attorney Generalship and offers his support should he decide to run for the office.”
