Notes: Publisher's advertising material included in pagination. "In the year 1853, the author of this work made a journey through the Seaboard Slave States, and gave an account of his observations in the 'New York Daily Times, ' under the signature of 'Yeoman.' Those letters excited some attention, and their publication in a book was announced; but, before preparing them for the press, the author had occasion to make a second and longer visit to the South. In the light of the experience then gathered, the letters have been revised, and, with much additional matter, are now presented to the public."--P. vii]
