"It seems that two other towns in 0
the State were to hold laymen's con- b
ventions about the same time as Ches- g
ter and the representatives of the in- i
ternational org.nization wanted the
dates so arrang._d that they could get W
around, and not less than three towns ei
were to have held conventions in or- el
der to get the matter through. How- ei
ever, Abbeville fell down, and this L
knocked out the plans so the conven- R
tion here was ordered cancelled." 11

L2 he was on the floating battery in
bhe harbor of Charleston when the

hrough the entire four years' strug
le and was engaged in many of the -
nst important battles of the war. L]
