Robert S. Davis is senior professor of History at Wallace State College, Hanceville, Alabama. His many publications include several articles and books on the American Revolution in Georgia and South Carolina. His research on the letters in American Husbandry started almost forty years ago when he learned of them from a publication of the late Dr. Albert B. Saye. Bob’s failure to find any Georgian who could have been the author led to his first publication in a scholarly journal. The idea that the plantation described was in South Carolina came from a suggestion by Farris W. Cadle, the authority on Georgia land grants and surveys.
