Summary
In 1834, Brevard Davidson began a journal by noting that despite having failed at previous attempts to keep an account of the running of his farm, he was going to try one more time. He kept up that journal for twenty years, usually with several entries each week, providing us a glimpse into the operation of a working plantation. [summarized from the back cover]
