Benjamin Franklin Perry was appointed governor of South Carolina by Pres. Andrew Johnson in 1865. He had opposed secession, but served in the Confederate government after the state declared it was leaving the Union.

On Feb. 6, 1868 Gov. Perry's letter on the state of the state was published in the New York Times:
