I am grateful for the assistance of many people in the preparation of
this volume:
Debbie Gallik for typing the text of The Cub of the Panther and
Sheila Coleman for assistance with the Afterword, appendices, and
many other details; their unfailing loyalty and reliability bring credit to
Mississippi State University.
Kimball King for permission to use portions of two articles origi-
nally published in Southern Literary Journal at the University of North
Allen Stokes and Thomas Johnson for assistance over many years
with materials in the Charles Carroll Simms Collection, South
Caroliniana Library, and to the library for permission to publish the
holograph title page and the sketch of Mount Tryon from Simms' 1847
journal included in this volume as well as the manuscript chapters
Peter Shillingsburg for many discussions on editorial theory; and
Anne Carol Shillingsburg for text collation.
I wish to thank especially Mrs. A. G. Furman III, John C. Guilds,
James B. Meriwether, and James E. Kibler for their various encourage-
ments on the long journey to restore this novel's wholeness and bring
it to book form.
