Scope and Contents of the Materials

This is a photocopy of two notebooks written by John J. James about his experiences working for Cassius M. Clay in the 1890s. The researcher should keep in mind that he is writing nearly forty years later, so these are memories rather than events as they occurred. He talks about men who worked on the farm, and about how Clay met Dora Richardson. He also talks about working on the farm, killing hogs, picking berries and more. It consists of an intimate look at Cassius M. Clay in the later years of his life, particularly through his marriage to Dora and after.
