Two letters, 2 October [18]63 and 27 April 1864, added to the South Caroliniana Library’s holdings of MacKenzie family papers consist of a short note to Mrs. John MacKenzie, Charleston, S.C., from Geo[rge] Brown enclosing $100.00 as requested by his aunt and conveying greetings from family members.

This accession also includes a longer letter penned by Elizabeth Brown from Winnsboro, S.C., discussing the scarcity of provisions - “I trust...that you have found Providence has provided as in days past,” expressing thanks to God “for His many mercies this year,” speculating that “if Grant is driven off Peace I should hope will soon follow,” and noting that she was sending her friend a dress by express, “as I fear yours must be pretty low.”
