Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Excerpt from History of Alabama and Incidentally of Georgia and Mississippi: From the Earliest Period

About four years since, feeling impressed with the fact that it was the duty of every man to make himself, in some way, use ful to his race, I looked around in search of some object, in the pursuit of which I could benefit my fellow-citizens; for, although much interested in agriculture, that did not occupy one-fourth of my time. Having no taste for politics, and never having studied a profession, I determined to write a History. I thought it would serve to amuse my leisure hours, but it has been the hard est work of my life. 'while exhausted by the labor of reconcil ing the statements of old authors, toiling over old French and Spanish manuscripts, traveling through Florida, Alabama and Mississippi for information, and corresponding with persons in Europe and elsewhere for facts, I have sometimes almost re solved to abandon the attempt to prepare a History of my State.
