Abstract:

Correspondence mainly consists of letters of St. Julien Ravenel and his wife Harriott Horry (Rutledge) Ravenel dealing with his scientific and agricultural interests and pursuits. There are also letters of other Ravenel family members and friends concerning personal and family matters, and other items.

Correspondence (1870-1880) of St. Julien Ravenel and Harriott Horry Ravenel concerns agricultural investigations and experiments with phosphate fertilizers, Bermuda grass, and cotton. There is also much correspondence of Robert N. Gourdin, including letters (1879) to him from Thomas Taylor "State Inspector Phosphates" concerning an experiment with ash element as a fertilizer for cowpeas. Other correspondents include Allard Memminger, the Stono Phosphate Company, and Johnson Hagood.

Other correspondence includes letters (1873-1874) mostly addressed to Harriott H. Ravenel under the pseudonym H. Hilton Broom from William Hand Browne (editor of the Southern Magazine) regarding payment for a short story, a missing manuscript, and other matters; letters of condolence (1882) to Harriott H. Ravenel on the death of St. Julien Ravenel from Alexander Agassiz, James Chesnut, E.N. Horsford (with his photograph), and many other friends and relatives; and posthumous tributes (1882) to St. Julien Ravenel.

Other items include a printed memorial (1874) to Louis Agassiz; and newspaper clippings.
