Laid in is a card with Jenkins's signature title, and the date 1866 affixed to a larger piece of paper. This address by Charles Jones is both a biography and a homage to the ex-governor's accomplishments. Charles C. Jones is himself known as one of the foremost Georgia historians of the 19th century.
