South Carolina.

The following correspondence and documents embrace the sum of our present knowledge, with reference to the Confederate veterans and disabled soldiers of 1861-1865 in the State of South Carolina:

Executive chamber, Columbia, S. C., April 11, 1890.
Prof. Joseph Jones, M. D., Box 1600, New Orleans, La.:
dear Sir—The governor has received yours of the 9th inst., and directs me to inform you that he will take immediate steps to procure as much of the information you desire as can possibly be obtained.

Very respectfully,

W. Elliott Gonzales, Private Secretary.1

Executive Department, Office of the Adjutant and Inspector-General, Columbia, S. C., June 12, 1890.
Surgeon General Jones, New Orleans, La.:
Sir—Herewith I send you some pamphlets relating to late war.

The rolls of companies from this State have never been completed, some forty not having yet come in, as per report of 1886.

The number estimated to have been furnished by this State is about sixty thousand, of whom it is believed, from careful estimates, some twelve thousand were killed or died. The rolls received have mainly been made from memory, hence are far from being correct, though some are fairly so.

1 Both North and South Carolina, it is believed, have made or will make provision for their native veterans. The editor has seen newspaper reference to contemplated action, but is not definitely advised as to such.
