Description

The call for a sequel to "Elsie's Girlhood" having become too loud and

importunate to be resisted, the pleasant task of writing it was

undertaken.

Dates compelled the bringing in of the late war: and it has been the

earnest desire and effort of the author to so treat the subject as to

wound the feelings of none; to be as impartial as if writing history; and,

by drawing a true, though alas, but faint picture, of the great losses and

sufferings on both sides, to make the very thought of a renewal of the

awful strife _utterly abhorrent_ to every lover of humanity, and

especially of this, our own dear native land.

Are we not one people: speaking the same language; worshipping the one

true and living God; having a common history, a common ancestry; and

united by the tenderest ties of blood? And is not this great grand,

glorious old Unionknown and respected all over the worldour common

country, our joy and pride? O! let us forget all bitterness, and live

henceforth in love, harmony, and mutual helpfulness.

For all I know of the Teche country I am indebted to Mr. Edward King's

"Old and New Louisiana"; for facts and dates in regard to the war, and in

large measure for Mr. Dinsmore's views as to its causes, etc.,

principally to Headley's "History of the Great Rebellion."

The description of Andersonville, and the life led by the prisoners there,

was supplied by one who shared it for six months. An effort was made to

obtain a sketch of a Northern prison also, but without success.

Yet what need to balance accounts in respect to these matters? The

unnatural strife is over, and we are again one united people.

M.F.
