Charles Pinckney died of malaria in Charlestown. His wife, Eliza, was nearly overcome with her grief. She wrote to her sons:
How shall I write to you! What shall I say to you! You have met with the greatest loss … Your dear, dear father, the best and most valuable of parents, is no more! He met the king of terrors without the least terror … and without agony, and went like a Lamb into eternity, into a blessed Eternity! where I have not the least doubt he will reap immortal joy for Ever and Ever.
John C. Calhoun was elected to the South Carolina general assembly from his home town Abbeville, SC.
