The autograph on the frontispiece of the book, "Plantation Memo", which was given to Whitfield Jack, Jr. by Francois Mignon.

"We were sitting in Francois' living room in almost total darkness, but with his bad eyesight, I doubt if his signature would have been any different even written in bright daylight. His hand was shaking slightly -- certainly in part due to age -- but I'm also sure in part due to excitement. It was a great moment for Francois and for me. He was very proud of his book. For me, it was a chronicle of many years at Melrose of which my family had been a part."

 Whitfield Jack, Jr.
