Abstract:

Papers documenting Preston's political activities and opinions, including letter, 22 Oct. 1854, New York, N.Y., to Gov. [John Lawrence] Manning, discussing necessity of England's remaining on friendly terms with the slave states that produced cotton, discrediting false rumors of England's attempts to "Africanize Cuba," and reporting discussion of efforts to modify "our colored seaman law."

Papers documenting the era of secession include letter, 17 Feb. 1861, Richmond, Va., "Confidential," to "My Dear Sir," [Gov. Francis Wilkinson Pickens?], reporting on attitudes and factions within the Virginia Convention re secession, acknowledging courteous treatment, but detecting feelings of irritation against South Carolina, "Virginia will not take sides until she is absolutely forced ... tendency is to an alliance with the Northern States ..."

Letter, 4 Apr. 1877, Columbia, S.C., to W.H. Gibbes, Nathaniel Barnwell, and Hugh S. Thompson, re omission of Preston's name from "the Delegation to the Diocesan Convention."

Other items include newspaper clippings, 1879-1936, including photocopy of news coverage, [13 May 1879], Columbia, S.C., of unveiling of monument to Confederate soldiers in Columbia with speech presented by Preston; undated clipping, questioning legality of adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment; obituary, ca. May 1881, The News and Courier, re Preston's patronage of Hiram Powers; and clipping, State, 22 Mar. 1936, re art works formerly owned by Preston and recent identification of a Raphael as having once belonged to his collection.
