Abstract:

Chiefly papers re Pierce Mason Butler's career as soldier, banker, planter, Indian Agent, and Governor of S.C., including family correspondence; notebooks (1829-1846) containing memoranda and personal accounts; notebooks (1848-1856) of Butler's wife Miranda Julia (Duval) Butler; bills and receipts re the settlement of Butler's estate and family finances; and other family papers.

He assures Jones that he will be "instrumental in any way in meeting your kind & generous suggestions" and that he will be "glad to aid any plan that shall settle a matter." Butler concludes his letter by noting that "Young Brooks" had been sent to him and that he "must take care of him" even though he is "not his friend-direct." commission as Colonel of the Palmetto Regiment, 29 June 1846; affidavit, c. 1845, re property owned and indebtedness, including character appraisal of slaves; list and description, 1 July 1846, of African-American slaves; printed orders, 22 and 23 Nov. 1846, assembling S.C. troops to serve in the Mexican War.
