brary. There were shelves for every
state, but.-since South Carolina was
represented v. only by huge volumes
containing, laws and reports, I didn't
bother to take the books from the
shelves. We are all secretly bored by ?
reports even from our own state and ?
I didn't expect to come in contact,
with any of its laws. I was interested .
in the battle flags and historical mu- ;

the building, has a circular gallery a- ?

In four -niches in opposite sides of
the' rooms are groups of richly color

relics or monuments in reference to j

they drank the humility of being sur
prised by the restless patriots. We re
call that George the Third was a Ger

ter all our grievance was with Ger

j many states, but who shall say that
Massachusetts and South Carolina
are not among the greatest? Daniel
