THIS BOOK IS AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATED BY

THE AUTHOR

“There can be no nobler spectacle presented than that of an honorable man, standing as it were alone, breasting the storm of popular passion and prejudice. It requires more true courage to do so than to charge a battery; and, in the end, higher honor and more enduring esteem will be the reward of this noble self-sacrifice. Let your rule through life be to do what you believe right, without regard to the clamor of the public; and after the passions of the hour have passed away you will enjoy the richest of all rewards—the confidence of your countrymen and the consciousness of duty faithfully performed.” A. H. H. STUART, Address at the University of Virginia,

June 20, 1866.
