There were gossips, horse-stealers, cattlerustlers, jail-breakers, counterfeiters and murderers among Georgia's first colonists. These volumes are a personal history of the first decade of Georgia between 1733, when James Oglethorpe, Georgia's founder, came to America, and 1743, when he returned to England. More than two hundred letters, written by Oglethorpe himself as well as by nearly anonymous colonists, discuss grand strategies, public controversies, private scandals and the problems of daily living. The letters have been selected from the Egmont Papers at the University of Georgia Library, a unique assemblage of contemporary copies of letters made for the president of the Trustees who established the colony, and from the published and unpublished volumes of the Colonial Records of the State of Georgia.--Page 2 of cover
