Comments: "...in March, 1861, he (Russell) arrived in the United States as a special correspondent for the London Times...he found much to praise in the South, where he met all the principal officials, civil and military, thought highly of them, and felt that the South would probably never be conquered...one may get a remarkable vivid picture of life in the South during three months in the early period of the Confederacy." Coulter 403. Despite his support of the South, Russell was opposed to slavery. Howes R-540. Civil War Books I, p. 155.

I am very pleased that you took the time to consult me on the price before just adding the additional shipping cost onto my credit card. Ordering things on-line, one runs into all kinds of less-than-considerate business practices... Thanks again for taking the time to contact me. I'm looking forward to the book. - Eric P.
