The record of El Destino and Chemonie plantations cannot be brought to a close without some account of the changes wrought there by the ravages of the War for Southern Independence, no matter how meager that account has to be. And meager it is. Beyond a few letters, some broken statistical memoranda jotted down by George Noble Jones, and a score or more bits of paper strewn about the El Destino attic, there is nothing. It is with the fullest realization of this circumstance and the resulting limitation of the picture of the plantations that the following narrative is presented.
