10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By David Seaman VINE VOICE on February 12, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a re-write.

I have not read the small blue booklet displayed on the right side of the page. I DID read a re-print of it in Elizabeth Dowling Taylor's "A Slave In The White House". I suspect that the stalling of her books release may well have something to do with an attempt to sell as many copies of Paul Jennings' tract, originally published at 75 copies by Cornell in 1876. I was sent the Galley (or uncorrected proof) of Taylor's 295 page book, "A Slave In The White House" by Amazon's VINE program, where they ask reputable writers and critics to help pre-sales on books as well as for the publisher to pull quotes. Read about VINE by clicking "VINE VOICE" beneath my name above.

The authors of these reviews always have the right to "edit" their review. Because of the extensive back and forth between this author and an anonymous civilian who calls him or herself "Now What" I am pulling what was said to have been my words here and writing the following as my review:

I did indeed read the words of Paul Jennings but my suggestion to you is to save the nine bucks, wait until Elizabeth Dowling Taylor's "A Slave In The White House" comes out and read it there, along with her gifted and well researched volume. Both odcuments are critical in the never ending search for truth in American History. To read my review of Taylor's "A Slave In The White House" type that title into SEARCH, note that this item is available for "pre-order" which means it has yet to be released and keep downscrolling. My review was one of the earliest and is therfore one of the last to be found. If memory serves it is called "Truth at Last."

As for Now What I can't help but wonder what now. As you can read, Now What wanted more from me than clarification.

Format: Paperback
I am rating the product for sale here, not Paul Jennings' writings, which are worth reading if one has any interest at all in his life or the times of the Madisons. It is a tragedy these 24 pages are basically the only writings available written by Jennings himself, who by all accounts was a very interesting and literate man.

I cannot recommend purchasing what is basically a 25 page pamphlet, with no embellishment or expository supplement whatsoever, for $8. Written in 1865, this work is most definitely in the public domain. Search for it on Google Books and print it yourself.

This bbok came in great condition and in a timely manner. However, I also purchased "A Slave in the White House...", the contents of this book are included in that book.

As stated in previous comments, it is not a book, more of a leaflet. I love history and having someone's voice speak to me a hundred years later has so much meaning. Mr. Jennings had known the President longer than his wife and was his personal servant, which gives a lot of insight into this individual in particular as well as the President's household. Without this voice, we would not know who really took care of the items in the White House when the British arrived.
