The following says tiie iVetcs and
Courier, is tlie correspondence with
Con. Gordon in reference to tiie testi
monial from the women of Columbia.
which was Ii rwarded to him about
six weeks ago :
Columbia, S. C , October 31,1877.
To (Son. ./. Ii. Gordon? Dkak ol t:
I am requested by "Columbia women"
to ask your acceptance ol this silver
salver, as a token of their gratitude
aud regard. It was intended for
your little "Carolina," and w e deeply
deplore the disappointment that has
fallen upon our design of giving into
her keeping a record of Carolina be
ing free, through the help of Gord m
Sir, words would not express the
thoughts that moves our hearts at the
sound of your name. Gordon and
Hampton ! So closely entwined, that
to think ofthe one is to think of the
other; to think of either is to think of
our State; ami to think ot our State
is to combine in thought what is
highest and noblest in the history of
the past, and to ask God's blessing
for the future.
We scud our offering, a representa
tive of all grades of society, far too
small to hold the words of praise, an 1
grutitude that, fnlj fr??n> the lips of a!!,
even the poorest enriching her mite
with "God bless Cordon." Wo all
say, "God bless you;" the man who
came to us in our need; who worked,
watched lor and bailed with joy the
hour we were set free. Yours,
Washinuton*, December 3, 1877.
To Miss lulmore?Dkak Madam : I
have received the silver salver pre
sented l?y the women ol Columbia, and
with it the letter from yourself as
their representative. It would be un
availing to attempt an expression of
my appreciation of the gift, or my
sense of gratefulness for tll2 honor
done nte. I am not insensible, how
ever, of the fact that you place too
high ah estimate upon my service,
for my nature must have been callous
indeed if I had not responded to Caro
lina's call with every energVMrfittBB
Whatever of assistance I have heeu
able to contribute to the relief of your
Slate from the evils of misgovern -
incut, was rendered to a pmple bound
to those who sent meliere by every
tie of kindred, of interest, of deathless
memories and eudutitig sympathies.
I shall treasure this beatiful gill
through life as a memorial o: South
Carolina's new birth, and of the too
.generous tribute paid tome by her
daughters, for the aid it was my pri
vilege to render in the time of her
distress and humiliation.
With sincere thanks to you and I o
tho-e whom you represent, I ant most
respect! idly and truly yours,
?I. B. Gordon.
