McMurtrie) was a regular correspondent with Benjamin Franklin (who had helped his father establish the press). With provenance to Jacob Motte, plantation owner and political figure in colonial South Carolina, who was the public treasurer of South Carolina at the time these laws were published. An extraordinarily rare work, located by Gould and Morgan only in the Library of Congress copy and the present copy. GOULD & MORGAN, SOUTH CAROLINA IMPRINTS 120. SHIPTON & MOONEY 40480.
