David M. Ramsay in Charleston, SC wrote to John Kean, unaddressed. The letter discussed a particular monetary issue in regard to this profession as a physician. The issues discussed included the "renewal" of relocating African-Americans in advance of redistricting to increase representation. This appalled Ramsay. Northern states retaliated against southern transgressions by sending their African-Americans down there. Ramsay claimed his colleagues distrusted him greatly. People mentioned: Governor of South Carolina, Attorney General of South Carolina. Places mentioned: Columbia. Notable quote: "I abhor national reflection but had almost said all Jews are rascals with but very few exceptions."
