This envelope appears to be from the late 1800s. It seems likely that S. P. Thurmond is Samuel P. Thurmond, a colonel and the Solicitor General of the Executive Department of Georgia during the Civil War. S.P. Thurmond was a prominent lawyer and Athenian. He was self-educated and strong-willed. Over his years in law and politics, he gained prominence and wealth. He died in 1887.
The collection consists of one envelope, addressed to S.P. Thurmond, Jefferson, Georgia, with a flowery University of Georgia emblem in place of a return address.
