Text Item Type Metadata
Emanuel Handy, an Atchison colored man, remembers Jeff. Davis, and says Davis was one of the best men he ever knew in the south. Handy says when he was a boy he used to black Davis' boots. Handy remembers that after the war Davis was the first white man in the south to sell land to a negro. He says Davis sold one of his farms to a colored man who had been among Davis' slaves. Handy says what Jeff. Davis did was done as a representative of the southern people, and that personally he was a man with the best impulses.
