An -Unpublished Letter from the
South's Great Chieftain With .bome
Appropiate Suggestions by Mr.
Dear Sir: I think the Confed
erate veterans, when they meet
soon in Winnsboro, would like to
read a letter that their president
sent to a gentleman who had
named his son Jefferson Davis.
-So, I enelose a copy of it for
*publication, as it has not been
printed hitherto. It will not only
-interest them as a message from
their beloved and revered comn
2nander-in-chief, as well as the
-president of the country for
-which they offered their lives to
defend and for which he virtually
gave his life, but it reveals to
those who did not know him the
dignity of the gentleman and the
ca m, clear mind of the great
statesman that Jefferson Davis
was, so that his words will equally
interest and instruct the genera
tion coming on to take the places
in our Southe:n States of thbe old
That part of his letter begin
ning, "Force cannot settle a ques
tion of right," contains a truth
that is inanswerable, and is so
clearly stated that it ought to be
taught word for word to our
children who are learning of Jef
ferson Davis as a character in
history simply, and from books
and teachers, often alien and hos
tile to the principles of constitu
tional government that the Con
federacy sought to maintain, and
failed, so that the further surren
der of the reserved powerS of the
states is going on in an accel
erating degree to this day.

My Dear Sir: Please accept my
sincere thanks for your kind let
ttr forwarded from Memphis and
received here. There could be
no higher pleasure than that of
naming a son after one who 1s
estimated by the service he hias
rendered: arxd 1 acknowledige the

prayers for the welfare and hap
piness of you and yours. My
earnest wishes that every good
may attend your son are cordially S
offered. The shadows that now
rest on our beloved South will, I l
hope, be lifted before he reaches t
man's estate. That hope is based 1
on a firm belief in the potency I
of truth and the conviction that c
the cause for which we contended I
is as necessary now to the hap- 1
piness and liberty of the people e
as it was when asserted in 1776,e
and reduced to a more practical
f orm in 1789.
I entirely concur in your opinion
that it best becomes us, undert
existing circumstancee, t' yield ai
faithful observance of it: obliga- <
tions resulting from a reunion of
the states; but this does not in
volve the admission that our
defeat was a decision against the
justice of our cause. 1
Force cannot settle a question
of right ,and they talk idly who e
say admitted the question of I
State-iights to the "arbitrament c
of the sword." Our revolution- i
ary sires secured these rights for t
themselves and their posterity.; c
Who of this generation had the e
function or the power to submit
to the ordeal of battle the historyi
of their successors, to installr
the fickle God of War as the 1
judge of their political inheri-'
tance and that of their childrenf
and their children's children for
Trusting that your son, my
namesake, may see the constitu
tion restored to its early con- I
struction, and the states arcord-te
in1. to the compact of union in j
the fall enjoyment of all the un
delegated powers, and that all I'
his ends may be his God's andb
