Summary
"It is a constant regret to me that my dear husband never wrote the book he had been thinking of and planning for some years, and which would have been called 'Recollections of Beverley Tucker'. His wonderful memory, keen wit, and facile pen would have made it valuable and enjoyable, but failing health and business troubles prevented the execution of his purpose. His life was an eventful one, and he wished his grandchildren to have his own record of hte many scenes through which he passed, and his own assurance that there was not one world of truth in the charges brought against him at the close of the Civil War." -- preface
