I wish to thank all who have assisted me in bringing this study to completion. To Dr. F. M. Green I am deeply grateful for causing me to develop an interest in the subject of slavery. Others to whom I am indebted for their assistance are Mrs. M. B. Owen and her staff, especially Miss Frances Hails, of the Alabama Department of Archives and History. The officials in many court houses in the state placed valuable records at my disposal for which I am thankful. I wish to thank David Gleason for the photography used in the book. I am also indebted to Dr. Lewy Dorman and Mrs. Donald F. Mulvihill for constructive suggestions, to Mrs. R. S. Van de Woestyne for valuable criticism, and to my wife, Carrie Autrey Sellers, for her assistance in the whole undertaking. Finally, I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the Research Committee of the University of Alabama for granting me some financial assistance in making this study.
