Inscribed by the subject's daughter, Jennie Knight Mangum, on the front free endsheet. From the Foreword- "And so began the great stewardship of his life, the dispensing of wealth given into his care for the help of the Church and the providing of employment for the people under conditions conducive to right living. This work was in harmony with the aspirations of his great soul, and brought joy into his life... But Jesse Knight does not stand in genealogical isolation; his forbears were actuated by the same spirit, and his descendants have a trend in the same direction. To comprehend fully the life of Jesse Knight, it is necessary, therefore, to know something of his ancestors and to visualize those who have come after."
