{{ The last of the Confederacy. The handsome mansion of the late Thomas C. Perrin, whose signature lead all the rest on the ordinance of Secession passed by the South Carolina Convention. It is said that in a parlor of this mansion occurred the very last official action of the Confederate Government. Not long ago the splendid mansion of Thomas C. Perrin in Abbeville Village (by far the finest mansion I ever saw in this country) was consumed to ashes. The president and his cabinet spent the night at Mr. Perrin's house as they passed through Abbeville on their retreat westward from Richmond. Then and there it was formally resolved to disband. Mr Benjamin, the Secretary of State, consulted with the host as to the destruction of the great seal of fire, desiring his aide in effecting that end. Mr. Perrin suggested as a better way of disposing of it to commit it to the keeping of the Savannah River, which the Secretary was expecting to cross on the morrow. It is believed that this was done.}}
