Excerpt from The Story of My Life

This Autobiography was written up to, and including, the year 1863, by my father, just two months prior to his death, while on a visit to the Hon. D. L. Yulee, at Pittsfield, Massachusetts. The Story is completed from letters written by him to my mother during his visits to Europe.

To further show the noble character of the man, even as a boy, I have appended a few letters written to his then sweetheart while a student at college. I feel under many obligations to my friend Judge Mackey, of Washington, for his able introduction, as well as many valuable suggestions during the preparation of this work.
