John H. Huiet Advertising Circular [ca. 1890s?]   
    A gift to SCL Manuscripts Division announced in 2008

| Manuscripts Gifts 2008 | Front Page 2008 | Previous Issues | Friends of the Library |

Printed late nineteenth-century circular advertising agricultural steam engines manufactured by Erie City Iron Works (Erie, Pennsylvania), and marketed in the South Carolina Counties of Lexington and Edgefield by the Batesburg Agency, Jno. H. Huiet, agent.

Signed in print by Huiet and declaring the products to be “A Profitable Investment!,” the handbill quotes rates for delivery “at any Depot on the Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta Railroad” for different combinations of six horse power engine, cotton gin, and cotton and hay press. The initial invest¬ment, it suggests, “can be made in one season,” and Huiet noted that he had available on consignment all the implements advertised which he would sell from his stock to suit purchasers.
