This is History book. From that period in which the right and title to the lands of Carolina were sold, and surrendered to the King, and he assumed the immediate care and government of the province, a new aera commences in the annals of that country, which may be called the aera of its freedom, security, and happiness. The Carolineans who had long laboured under innumerable hardships and troubles, from a weak proprietary establishment, at last obtained the great object of their desires, a royal government, the constitution of which depended on commissions issued by the crown to the Governor, and the instructions which attended those commissions. The form of all provincial governments was borrowed from that of their mother country, which was not a plan of systematic rules drawn before-hand by speculative men, but a constitution which was the result of many ages of wisdom and experience.
It's a tough read having been written in the late 1700's, but originally informative to those curious about early South Carolina.
Hewatt arrived in Charleston in 1763, at the end of the French and Indian War. He provides a most valuable picture of South Carolina from its first settlements to about 1768, from the point of view of a loyalist. Fascinating!
