Charleston, June 16. [1844)` My dear Sir

But, upon reflection, it seems to me quite as well that I should do so. A simple recapitulation for the help of mutual recollection, will suffice. You are then to have the right of publishing three thousand (3000) copies of my history of South Carolina, forming the third edition of that work, on the following conditions: You are
1st. To cancel a charge against me for Questions to my $12.00
2d. To provide similar questions to my Hy. 12.00
3"" Honor my draft in favor of S. B & Co.
