Brent was a lawyer and politician in California before becoming a Confederate Brigadier General. In this volume, which was published as two works together, he recounts the details of a murder case he tried in early Los Angeles in the 1850s, and the capture of the ship Indianola during the Civil War. Inscribed by Brent's granddaughter, Hally Carrington Brent. Relatively scarce.
