From the Introduction, "This intended to embody the names and works of all those ladies who have written for publication, and have been recognized as "writers" in the Southern States...In this collection will be found record of Southern writers, good, bad, and indifferent. I have not pretended to pick the chaff from the wheat. I have made a record of such writers as have written and published sufficient to form a volume, and told the world who they are, and what they have done, and left it to conclude what it has a right to expect from them in the future."
It is interesting to look back over 130 years ago and see which author's work has stood the test of time.
