GENERAL PINCKNEY TO GENERAL HARRINGTON.

Charleston, August 24, 1784.

Dear Sir:

I am much obliged to you for the Dog's foot grape Seed, & shall take great Care in the Cultivation of it; I now send by the Post the Seeds I promised.

Johnson refused to give Security to pay the Money in October, but insisted it was an old Debt, & that he could only give Security for the payment of it by installments in four years agreeable to the ordinance. This security I declined accepting without Instructions from you, & therefore issued the writ.

I have not heard from Lieut. Campbell, but shall observe your directions on that subject.

I am exceedingly glad to hear that Sawney Crawford is convinced of his injustice & means to make you amends.

I shall write to Capt. Fishburn about the Rice Plantation & hope there will be no objection to have the Court determined in February. I remain with great regard & Esteem,

Your most obedt. Servt.,
CHARLES COTESWORTH PINCKNEY.
