Chesterfield's Letters by Lord Chesterfield.
Letters, Sentences and Maxims. Philip Dormer Stanhope, Earl of Chesterfield, 1694-1773, had a
fate generally misunderstood. Dr. Johnson, a poor scholar but in the prime of life, seems to have mistaken a delay in an interview, and to have abused his lordship very soundly ever afterward. To this misconception we owe one of the finest and manliest letters ever written. Mrs. Eugenia Stanhope, the widow of the recipient of these letters, sold them, enhanced in value from the earl's literary reputation, for 1,500 pounds! That was an immense sum in those days.
Published 1894 in Philadelphia, 307 pp., indexed. A rare find indeed!

GRAVES. I am researching early Georgia to discover more about the Graves family. My gg grandfather was George Graves who married Lulender Gunn in 1840 in Warren County, Georgia. I can't find George's parents. There was a Thomas Graves Sr b 1729 Lower Potomack Hundred, Maryland. He and sons are listed on the 1790 Franklin County Census. I can't connect any of them to George Graves yet. One thing I know, is that Dr. George Graves who married Mary Scott June 26 1790 in Augusta, Georgia is not the father of my George Graves. My George Graves and wife moved west through Alabama, Mississippi, and settled in Wood County, Texas 1854-1858, where they are listed on the 1860 census.
I am aware of a Graves family in Muscogee County Georgia and wonder if they are related to my George Graves?
