Charleston: A.E. Miller 1839
The convention hosted merchants included many local South Carolinian Jewish delegates including Abraham Tobias, M.C. Mordecai, J.N. Cardozo from Charleston and J.S. Cohen, J.D. Mordecai, R.W. Gibbes from Richland. In the report on taxation of commercial capital, slaves are valued at $500 and are discussed in the same vein as stock and goods. One of the convention delegates was political economist and statistician Jacob Newton (formerly “Nunez”) Cardozo (1786-1873), author of Notes on the Political Economy, and a member of the illustrious Sephardic Cardozo family. The patriarch - Aaron - arrived in New York in 1752, two of Aaron’s sons David (Jacob’s father) and Isaac settled in South Carolina where they became active members of the Jewish community, and specifically members of Congregation Beth Elohim. An opponent of nullification, Jacob was the editor and eventual owner of The Southern Patriot, the daily newspaper of South Carolina.
