Letter, 24 June 1861, written by J.L. Reynolds from South Carolina College and addressed to South Carolina governor Francis Wilkinson Pickens was penned by Reynolds in the absence of the secretary of the faculty, and on behalf of the faculty it states their desire to clarify a previous communication regarding the acceptance of college cadets into Confederate military service.

A letter sent earlier by Dr. [Maximilian] La Borde "did not intend to 'request' the acceptance of the Cadets" nor had the faculty "expressed any 'desire' in reference to the matter." Since the faculty had "no control over the movements of the students" during vacation, Reynolds' letter notes, "they deem this whole matter to be one lying entirely with the Executive of the State, and their parents, or guardians."

Docketing information on the back of the letter states: "Letter of the Faculty of So. Ca. College, refusing to give consent to Students going to Virginia."
