Legare

A List of Losses fifty four Prime negroes, thrity sic of which are all prime men, the balance women excepting four children out of the fellows there aare one engineer & three prime first class carpenters. the Government burnt sixty bales of my Sea Island cotton of extra fine quality which sold the year prior, time command eighty or ninety cents, they also destroyed the two barns that contained the cotton.

The Government directed all the cattle driven from Edisto, which was down some two thousand all coming over the Edisto ferry landed on White Point Slans Isld owned by me turned loose then for over two weeks eating out six hundred acres of sea Island cotton, the field in full bloom the least estimate of loss would be 60 bales cotton, they also destroyed all my potatoes from the Point to my last plant consuming at least 5 months allowance for our four hundred negroes Out of a large stock of blood cattle of 350(?) head I have only _______ 60 head the rest driven off and killed sent off with the Edisto Cattle that mixed up with them, my sheep of 300 head lost down to 170 head and they of the prime south down blood. The loss of Cattle and sheep was while I was absent removing my negroes from the enemy.

My corn used by pickets & the full amt with blades to fifteen hundred dollars and many of the matters which I forgotten(?) to mention.

I wish also to state that the Provo Marshall hung a prime fellow for ______ he had been to Edisto but returning was caught on my Slann Island place in company with his wife, whom they accused of trying to carry his wife off; two were taken together she escaped hanging which I sold , he was the most inferior of the two but brought twelve hundred dollars. I claim what that state customarily pays in such cases. I thought the Legislature had exempted from war tax those who had to leave with all their people on account of the enemy occupying the controll of the place. I paid my nearly $600 war tax for those negroes
