So few of his letters have been preserved that those which remain have an additional value and interest to students of the character, life, and career of The Father of the University, who is also one of the most distinguished figures in North Carolina history. The letters are annotated carefully and freely wherever they are not self-explanatory.As an introduction to the letters, there is a sketch of General Davies life. With Dr.

Hubbards volume in the Sparks Biographies, and Hon. Walter Clarks address at Guilford Battle Ground already in existence and covering the field so ably, the author of this sketch felt some hesitation in undertaking to write another, but as some new facts in regard to Davie had come to light in his investigations, it was thought best that it should be done. He wishes, however, to acknowledge his great indebtedness to both of these writers above mentioned. So constantly have they been used in preparing this sketch that it was impossible to refer to them in the notes.

He also wishes to express his grateful acknowledgements to his colleague. Dr. Kemp P. Battle, for much information in regard to Davie and for many helpful suggestions as to the sketch.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
