I cannot express the pleasure I have hadin sitting down, and recalling the incidents ofmy childhood and youth. In doing so, it hasenabled me to live my life over again. I onlyhope that the reader will experience somethingof the same pleasure in reading the book that Ihave had in writing it.Before the war, the relation that existedbetween the master and his slaves was, in mostcases, one of tenderness and affection. Therewas a mutual attachment between them, whichhas commanded the admiration of the world.But since the war, an estrangement between thecolored and the white races has sprung up, whichhas resulted in a feeling of intense bitterness andalienation.

But I am glad to say that things arenow taking a turn for the better. I can see signsof a better day ahead - and if this book should, inany way, contribute to, and help on this muchdesired day, the author will be satisfied.
