Under these circumstances I accepted glad ly an Offer from Mr. Bennett to make for him an exploration of the principal South ern States, and see for myself what I had vainly tried to discover by questioning others. My journey began early in March, and ended in July. I visited successively Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina, and Georgia; and the re sults Of my observations were printed in letters to the New York Herald. These let ters, with some additions and corrections, form the larger part of the present volume. They became, on their publication in the Herald, the subject Of a contentious discus sion in the journals Of both parties, North and South, and, I must confess, had not the good fortune to please partisans anywhere. It was probably inevitable that they should Offend those whose preconceived views or whose interests they did not advance, for I sought only for facts, and did not care what side they favored; but it has been a great satisfaction to me to receive many private letters from Southern men, both Republicans and Democrats, acknowledging the correct ness of my statements, and the general jus tice of my views and conclusions.
