Overview

Excerpt from Four Years in Rebel Capitals: An Inside View of Life in the Southern Confederacy, From Birth to Death; From Original Notes, Collated in the Years 1861 to 1865

In offering another new edition of this work to that public which has so graciously received previous ones, the publishers aim to meet a seeming omission in the latter.

Frequent requests come to them from various parts of the country, asking for Mr. DeLeon's photograph and autograph. To comply with them is not practicable; and the present is made an "Author's Autograph Edition," Mr. DeLeon having signed every one of the portraits. These are the latest made, from a photograph taken expressly for this purpose. Of them the author recently wrote:

"They are not so flattering as those vanity-breeders, lately published by my good friends of 'Lippincott's,' but they seem to me nearer to the truth of History teaching by reflection."

As another point of probable interest to the curious, estimates from the widely differing minds of two noted people are appended to this note. The letters of Mrs. Wilson and General Johnson were printed in the current newspapers of their day. Concreted here, in form as they then appeared, they may prove of interest to the reader of the future.

[From the New Orleans Picayune.)

Authoress to Author.

The latest book written by Mr. T. C. DeLeon, of Mobile, is called "Four Years in Rebel Capitals," and is dedicated to Mrs. Augusta Evans Wilson, the famous Southern novelist. That lady has just written its author the following characteristic and complimentary letter:

At Home, July 17, 1890.

Dear Mr. DeLeou:

Since the arrival of the handsome copy of "Four Years in Rebel Capitals," I have laid aside all engagements and devoted every hour to the study of your vivid photographs of that sacred and inexpressibly dear Confederate era. the bare memory of which brings back the old glow of pride in Southern heroism. Accept my cordial congratulations upon the polished and elegant diction, the genuine pathos, the unanswerable logic, and the brilliant, critical acumen that characterize your last and - may I add? - incomparably best book.
