The Introduction marvels at the "hold Gov. Robert L. Taylor has upon the hearts of the people...He is a great word-painter, putting into the sublimest language the grandest and the most solemn thoughts conceivable by man." In addition, he is "a most popular orator and entertainer, and his reputation as a humorist is as wide as the country itself." His thirteen Letters are to Uncle Sam, the Politicians, the Boys, the Girls, the Bachelor, and others. Included also are his thoughts on Ingersoll, and several advertisements for the Georgia Railroad, and Draughn's Practical Business College in Nashville. OCLC locates institutional copies under three accession numbers, but few are seen in the marketplace. Item #25581
