Blurb: Byrd was a pillar in the community and colony. He is consulted regularly by numerous people for everything from medical advice, to tutoring, legal and especially political issues. He is connected to the most influential people of the time. This work would be an especially useful resource to anyone investigating colonial medicine and relations between masters and slaves, and husbands and wives. Because it was his private journal, he writes about very aspects of life that are not generally discovered in sources of this (or any) era.
