Abstract:

Chiefly political correspondence and business papers re the sale of cotton and plantation supplies; bound items consist of account books, a scrapbook, and a notebook; letters to members of his family discuss plantation affairs and family and social life. Letters to his brother-in-law James Edward Calhoun contain frequent comments on political topics, especially those affecting John C. Calhoun. Correspondence (1855- 1859) is chiefly that of Pickens' third wife, Lucy Holcombe Pickens with her family and friends. Correspondents include James Buchanan, Pierce M. Butler, Robert Wilson Gibbes, James H. Hammond, George McDuffie, Ogden Niles, James K. Polk and John P. Richardson.

Letter, 6 Sept. 1837, from F.W. Pickens (Washington, D.C.) to Frances L. Greene (Lanesborough, Massachusets), concerns a letter sent to Miss Greene by Judge [Abel Parker] Upshur "on the subject of taking a situation in my family & c ... Since then (or rather before I knew he had written), I have met with a young lady here ready to go on with me, and under the very highest recommendations. Before any expectations may be created in your mind I write to inform you of the fact & regret that the Judge was put to the trouble of writing."

Letter, 17 July 1861, from Gov. Pickens to Gen. James Simons responds to Simons' letter addressing discrepancies in Pickens' earlier written communiques regarding Simons' resignation: "The original papers are all in the Adjutant General's office, or ought to be, and you are at perfect liberty to take copies, and show this to the Acting Adjutant General Simonton, and let him note what papers you take copies of, and then, of course, have them all filed carefully, as they constitute a public record." Pickens urges that Simons read the letter to his staff, "because I desire they shall know that nothing I have ordered or directed was in the slightest degree offensive, or at least was not at all so intended by me." [The letter, which is in a stenographer's hand but bears Pickens' signature, appears in print in Simons' July 1861 pamphlet, Address to the Officers of the Fourth Brigade: Giving the Grounds of his Resignation.].
