Important Letter from Gabriel E. Manigault to S.C. Gov. F. W. Pickens Re. the Defenses of Charleston in the Importance of Better Securing Morris Island... JUST GREAT CONTENT... HIS HOME OPEN TO THE PUBLIC IS ACROSS FROM THE CHARLESTON VISITOR CENTER! - On the Reverse of the Letter is a Docket all in the hand of Gov. Pickens

The first “Gabriel” Manigault (1704-1781) was a famous architect and in 1803 designed a home for his brother Joseph Manigault.  This design was the first in Charleston that was not based on the standard “single house” or “double house” models then commonly used.  It is a beautiful historic home to tour.  Joseph Manigault had 7 children and the one he named Gabriel Edward wrote this letter. 

The letter is written in nice dark ink on blue stationary.  It is in excellent condition.  It is 1 ½ pages in length with Governor Pickens note on the back of the blank third page… so if desired it could be displayed with the Manigault’s letter.
