[In June, 1775, the 1st. Provincial Congress of South Carolina raised two regiments of foot and one of rangers for the defense of the Province in case the British Government should attempt coersive measures against the Province. In November, 1775, the 2d. Provincial Congress added a regiment of artillery, and in February, 1776, the same body added two regiments of rifles. By resolutions of the Continental Congress of June 18th. and July 24, 1676, and of the General Assembly of South Carolina of September 20, 1776, these six regiments were taken upon the Continental Establishment as South Carolina's quota, although they made a larger force than Congress demanded of South Carolina-larger than the relative population of the State warranted. The regiment of rangers was subsequently converted into infantry, and on February 11, 1780, the Ave infantry regiments were consolidated into three by order of Gen. Lincoln [See issue of this magazine for July, 1902, pp. 177-179]. The records of these various regiments are scattered. Many of them are in the Record and Pension Office of the War Department; others are in the hands of libraries and historical societies; others are in private hands and still others have been irretrievably lost. Many of them are in possession of the South Carolina Historical Society and those are herewith given in chronological order.]

Inventory of Capt. Blake's Company
[This inventory is incomplete, this and the records that follow it under Nos. 2, 3 and 4 are taken from a mutilated book containing, apparently, only records of Capt. Blake's company. The book has been much mutilated and even the records that have not been destroyed altogether have been much defaced, and memoranda of household matters have been jotted down among the records of the Revolutionary company]

Web-master note: The SCHS list consists of the number of muskets, bayonets, pouches, caps, shirts, coats, waistcoats, breeches, stockings, shoes, blankets, and guns each soldier has. This count has been ommited from this transcription. Only the names of the soliders was transcribed.

COL. C C. PINCKNEY TO MAJ. ISAAC HARLESTON
Addressed: Major Harleston
Fort Moultrie/
Charlestown Jan: 20: 1780
Dear Major,
The Governor will send twenty Militia to augment the Garrison, you will be so good as to accommodate them in the best manner, and as soon as they arrive send a party of a serjeant & Nine regulars to Dewees's Island to serve as a covering party there to the Negroes who are to cut wood for the Garrison. I hope you received twelve Cords of wood the day before yesterday I was surprised to find from a Letter of Major De Brahm to Col: Laumoy that some of the soldiers have died for the want of Medicines & Necessaries in the Hospital, as Dr: Orr may have whatever supplies He thinks requisite on only taking the trouble to apply to the General Hospital. I have not received a Letter from my Brother [Major Thomas Pinckney] since I saw you, but Phil Neyle tells me that he is exceedingly reduced by the flux & is now giving the Beaume de Vie a fair tryal. My Mother [Mrs. Eliza (Lucas) Pinckney, widow of Hon. Charles Pinckney, sometime chief-justice of South Carolina] writes me he is very poorly. I mentioned to you I believe that I had neither seen nor heard from Col: Scott, but am informed that he will be at the Fort tomorrow. Marion. Henderson & Scott are our Lieutenant Colonels; Pinckney, Harleston & Hyrne our Majors [He evidently knew before the publication by Gen. Lincoln of his order of February n, 1780, consolidating the five infantry regiments of South Carolina into three, what officers were to be retained inactive service. (See the order in Vol. III. of this magazine, pp. 177-179.)]. I do not congratulate you on your appointment because I know you wished for an Honorable opportunity of retiring to the Class of a private Citizen, but I congratulate my Country on the assurance we now have of not losing your abilities in the Field during the Continuance of the present war. I shall write you more fully tomorrow at present Davis waits for my Letter.   I beg my love to the officers & remain
Yrs sincerely
Charles Cotesworth Pinckney-
I am obliged to you for your favor of yesterday.

COL. C. C. PINCKNEY TO MAJ. ISAAC HARLESTON
Addressed:   Major Harleston
or the Commanding officer
at Fort Moultrie/
Charlestown. Jan 27: 1780=
Dear Major,
The signals of the French Frigates are a Dutch Flag at the Main mast-
If the Enemy are upon the Coast a Blue Flag at the Main Mast.
Please to add to your Estimate of Plank the Quantity which will be necessary the repair the Planks in the Fort immediately how the guns are, and  [undecipherable word] place the Plank at [undecipherable word] Guard, and make each note separate. The General has informed me that the voice of the majority of the Regiments were that the Captains to fill up the three retained regiments should be appointed by the Field Officers after the Field officers had been elected by the Governor and himself and that they had accordingly agreed that the three regiments should be commissioned by the following Field Officers, viz.
1st Reg - Col. Pinchney, Lt Col. Scott, Major Pinckney
2d Reg - Lt Col Marion, Major Harleston
3d Reg - Lt Col Henderson [if he will accept, if not, Lt Col Horry], Major Hyrne
The General has ordered me to collect the sentiments of the said F: officers with respect to the Captains for filling up the line as soon as possible. To each regiment there are to be Nine Captains now appointed. I shall be therefore glad to receive your sentiments on the above subject by the very first opportunity. For my own part, I think the mode least liable to exception, will be to appoint the 27 Captains who have been longest in Service. I don't mean the 27 Eldest Captains, but the 27 oldest officers who have now the rank of Captain, as I think those officers who have been perhaps three years in the service or more, and who have but lately obtained the rank of Captain are entitled to be preferred on account of their long service to those who tho' Senior Captains have not been in the Service altogether above a year or two. But these are only my private sentiments on this Matter, and I shall be happy to receive yours without delay. When Col1: Scott arrives, be so good as to shew him this Letter and tell him, I shall be glad to receive his sentiments on the same subject.
Yrs sincerely
Charles Cotesworth Pinckney-

[Rev. Robert Smith to Major Isaac Harleston.]
Addressed:   Majr. Harleston-
of the 2d Sth Carolina
Dear Sir-
Some days past, I dined in Company with Lieut: Makerill of the 64th-who informed me, he had sent a Message to a Majr. Harleston, about a Negro of his, whom he was ready to deliver.   I immediately let him know, that this sd. Majr. Harleston was an acquaintance, & with his permission I would write to you-His answer was, yes-but added, that on not hearing from you, he had let an Officer of the same Regiment have the Fellow, not having use for him himself-that the Gentleman's name was Warner-on which another Officer abserved to me that it was the very Gentleman, who was quartered on me (or rather Tom Grimball, at whose house I now am)-on going home, I called the Fellow (whose name is Ballifo) & ask'd to whom he belong'd-he sd to you-& that he was fore'd away from the Plantation by Mr. Mackerill to look after Horses-that he had frequently requested to go home-& that Mr Warner had told him he should go home very soon-please to observe that Mackerill told me, he took the Fellow from the Plantation, & that he believes Ballifo wd not have come away of himself.-Ballifo told me that a Sorrell Colt with a blaz'd face, was at Mr. Manigaults opposite to Grimballs-which was your Colt-on enquiring, I saw it-and found it was taken by a Captn Crane of the 33d.-quartered at Manigaults, but who was  gone to York, & had given his Horses to his Servant-& that yr. price for the Colt was five Guineas-a large sum this-but which on your account I wd. have given-but alass-I am Guinealess--not a shilling-much more a Guinea--I believe the Colt is now sold, not having seen him sometime. -Warner is mareh'd on detachment to Monks Corner, with Provisions, & took Ballifo with him-who perhaps may elope, and save further trouble-Adieu may health attend you-with her hand-maid happiness-
Yrs. truly
