Letter : Charleston, [S.C.] to Robert G. Harper, 1787 Nov. 10.

Lowndes is gratified to be considered a friend of Harper and asks to hear from him as often as possible; he hopes that though Harper finds himself in a place (Ninety-Six District, S.C.) where "society is scarce and less refined" he will take advantage of his time by devoting himself to books and studies. Lowndes describes his daily activities (reading law, conversations with friends) and looks forward to visit to the country and the company of an "assemblage of ladies." Lowndes also mentions Mr. Charles Pinckney, who is "perfectly wedded to business and study," and wonders whether "this application is the consequence of an aspiring ambition" or another motive.
