Abstract:

The earliest letters in this collection were written by William Washington (1810-1849), the third of that name, to John Y. Stock (1809-1876), merchant of Charleston, to Anna Bowen Stock, John Y. Stock's wife and Washington's cousin, and to his wife, Theodosia Narcissa McPherson (1817-1898), between 1841-1848. South Carolina politics and family matters are his chief topics. One of the letters (1841 December 8) describes the impeachment proceedings against Judge [Baylis John] Earle (1795-1844) by John Lyde Wilson (1817-1898).

The papers of William Washington's son, J.E. McPherson Washington, include letters to his mother and sister, an autograph album he kept at the University of Virginia in 1855-1856, and a diary (1856) begun at the University of Virginia and continued in Charleston concerning student life, weather, and other matters. The journal also contains many directions for needlework in a different handwriting. The letters begin with his dismissal from West Point (1855) and continue through his early business career and social life in Charleston (1856-1858). They conclude with letters written by Washington while serving as a lieutenant in the Confederate Army at Fort Johnson, S.C. and later in Virginia. There are several letters from fellow officers attesting to his gallantry and popularity.

The collection also includes a return (ca. 1790s?) of Capt. James McPherson's Troop of Horse in the 20th Regiment, S.C. Militia; letters to William Washington's daughter, Martha Washington, from Wade Hampton (1818-1902), John L. Manning (1816-1889), George Herbert Sass (1845-1908), and others; miscellaneous poems, some by George Herbert Sass; and notes on the family.
