These "Reminiscenses," together with two little books, published in 1895 and 1896, entitled "A Brief Review of Railroad History" and "Reminiscenses of a Railroad Engineer," were written in 1894 & 1895 when the writer was about eighty-five years old.
Covering, as they do, the greater part of the nineteenth century, they are of value as a picture of American life and thought during that period. Their publication has been urged by friends in the South as well as in Pennsylvania, in order that this picture might be preserved. Those of us who had the privilege through many years, of intimate companionship with "Our Grandfather" would wish that through these pages his great-grandchildren and his great-greatgrandchildren might catch a glimpse of the personality, ability, and social charm of a man who, at the age of eighty-three, could preside at a Christmas dinner of thirty-five guests, and afterward lead them through a Virginia Reel, dancing with his oldest grandchild, the bride in the family.
His courtesy, sympathy and hospitality were boundless; always dignified he was small in stature but great in character and integrity. His ability in his profession, his faithfulness in his church activities and worship, his example in his family relationships, made him a strong influence in his community, the influence of a real Christian gentleman.
After passing his four score years and ten he left to his descendents an heritage in which they may well take pride.
