I wish to express my appreciation to the personnel of the Reference and Circulation Section, General Library Division, of the Virginia State Library, for their splendid service. Without the books from the Library it would have been impossible for me to have accumulated the material for this book.

I wish to thank the Richmond Times Dispatch , the Fredericksburg Free Lance Star and Virginia and The Virginia County Magazine , for their kind permission to use any material which might be needed from articles written by myself and previously published in those publications.
