Printed formal invitation, 6 December 1860, reflects the support for disunion within the Palmetto State shortly before South Carolina's declaration of secession issued, 24 Dec. 1864. The item promotes a "Soiree" at Newberry, S.C., to promote "a Separate State Action Party (the last party at this place in the Federal Union,) at the Farmer’s Hotel, on Friday Evening, 14th inst., at 7 o’clock."

The invitation is signed in print by seven senior managers, Dr. W.W. McMorries, Dr. W.H. Harrington, Dr. C.H. Kingsmore, General A.C. Garlington, General H.H. Kinard, Captain P.H. Duckett, and W.D. Goggans, and seven junior managers, J.E. Knotts, W.A. Williams, J.K. Nance, Jas. Y. McFall, John A. Johnson, R.H. Haltiwanger, and R.H. Wright.
