Book Description:
JOURNAL OF THE Commissioners of the Navy South Carolina July 22, 1779 March 23, 1780 Edited by A. S. SALLEY, JR. Secretary of the Historical Commission of South Carolina Printed for THE HISTORICAL COMMISSION OF SOUTH CAROLINA BY The State Company, Columbia. S. C. I913 Documents Depf c PREFACE. That portioil of the journal of the Commissioners of the Navy of South Carolina contained in this volume is a part of the records of the Comnissioners of the Navy of South Carolina which were returned to the State of South Carolina by an Act of the General Assembly of New York in 1911. That,portion of the journal cover ing the period from October g, 1776 the date of the organization of the board of Comnissioiiers of the Navy to March I, 1779, was printed in one volume by the Historical Commission of South Caro lina in 1912. That portion of the journal between March I, and July 22, 1779, has been lost. The journal had been kept in five or six thin blank books. The authorities of the State Library of New York had all of the thin voluines in their possession bound into one volume and stated before the fire of March 29, 1911, which partially destroyed the State capitol of ATew York, tliat five of them had been so bound together. This volume was so badly burned in the capitol fire tliat when it was received in South Carolina it was impossible to tell whether the missing portion of the journal had formed a part of the fifth of these thin blank books and had become separated therefrom and lost at the time of the fire, or had been kept in a sixth thin blank book which had been separated from its fellows and lost prior to the coming of the records into the possession of the State of New York. . The thin blank book in which this portion of the journal was kept is a little larger than the four in which the journal was kept to AIarch I, 1779, and, as a consequence, the margins thereof suffercd more damage than did those of the first four books.
