An inked highly detailed bill of sale manuscript 7.5” x 12 “(8 pages total) done in very fine hand totaling the remaining belongings and inventory of the former plantation of James Glenn (Glen). The massive amount of his estate is certainly impressive. Listed in the inventory are two noted slaves by the name of Harry and “Pomp.” Harry is valued at $550.00 and “Pomp” at $581.00 dollars. Reading through each page the sale was not for the financial faint at heart. Each page also identifies the buyer next to the item purchased and sales price. The manuscript is a virtual “Who’s Who” in South Carolina pre-Civil War history. Interesting to note that South Carolina’s first governor was James Glen who owned a rice plantation with slaves. He left South Carolina in the late 18th century and died in London in 1777. I would only speculate if this plantation is part of the former Governors holdings.
