John Faucheraud Grimke wrote to an Unknown Correspondent, unaddressed. Grimke informed his correspondent that he wanted to devote time to respond to their letter and was sending it by a little sailor boy who promised to call for an answer but did not comply with his word. The present moment was a critical one for their interests and the Assembly was not disposed to let Burke go to Congress and hold his seat on their bench. Burke would leave their District and Orangeburgh (South Carolina) without a representative. Grimke began speaking with Orangeburgh members about his correspondent and some of them seemed well received. If they were unable to leave Beaufort right away, Grimke suggested they write about four or five dozen circular letters without delay. Charles Pinckney was elected governor.
