Abstract:

Chiefly correspondence from Charleston (S.C.), and Danbury (Connecticut), written by E.M. Starr, William Waters, and Samuel G. Starr and others discussing operation of Wildman's hat shop business, Wildman and Starr, in Charleston (S.C.); topics discussed include politics in Charleston (S.C.), cotton prices, business conditions, and heath conditions and recent outbreak of yellow fever.

Letter, 19 July 1822, Charleston, S.C., from E.M. Starr, re Denmark Vesey slave insurrection and plans for traveling north; 2 letters, 15 Mar. 1825 (Charleston, S.C.) and 26 Dec. 1825 (Columbia, S.C.), to Wildman's son, Frederick S. Wildman, in Danbury, Conn., re his arrival in South Carolina, social activities, business accounts, and business opportunities in Columbia.

Letter, 8 November 1824 (Charleston, S.C.), from Andrew C[omstock] Dibble to hat manufacturer Zalmon Wildman (in Danbury, Connecticut), discussing consumer demand for hats and reporting on his ocean voyage from New York to Charleston (S.C.) aboard the ship, "La Fayette," which took 78 hours, and concludes with information on local weather conditions and health of the citizens in Charleston. Dibble apparently relocated to South Carolina to establish a store to sell hats for Wildman and planned to open the establishment within three days of his writing. He expected good business and predicted that had he been open on the Saturday before he had "not the least doubt but I would have sold 150 or 200 Doll[ar]s." Dibble closes his letter with remarks regarding merchandise. He explained that the "La Fayette Stamp goes very well," presumably in anticipation of the Marquis de Lafayette's visit to Charleston in 1825, and that the "retail is small brims I.E. for the city - but the country trade require as usual larger brims."

Letter, 20 Jan. 1826 (Charleston, S.C.), to Wildman's daughter, Mary Wildman in Danbury, Conn., re journal describing recent trip through S.C., business acquaintances, smallpox outbreaks, and arson attempts in Charleston, S.C.; letter, 12 Feb. 1828 (Newberry, S.C.), from Job Johnston, to Z. Wildman (Danbury, Conn.), re collection of accounts due; letter, 18 June 1828 (Edgefield District, S.C.), from H[ollis] Dunton, re Dunton's inability to pay his debt to Wildman.
