Description

Samuel wrote to John, addressed as Cashier of the Bank of the U.S. No. 80 Walnut Street, Philadelphia. Samuel found it impracticable to purchase stocks for John. When he first arrived in Charleston stocks fell. He did not realize the state debt would be so soon. It was impossible to purchase stocks unless you were paying with physical cash. The price of stocks are listed at the bottom of the letter. Names included: Grimke, Heyward, Joyner, and Mr. Watson.
