G.W. Blatterman’s 1838-1839 law notes are among the few extant records that document Professor John A.G. Davis’ lectures. According to the frontmatter, the notes were copied from law student Waverly Townes. The notes are organized by topic. In a lecture on slavery titled “Master v. Servant,” Davis established the legal definition of a “master” and then reviewed the kinds of servitude Blackstone defined in his Commentaries.
