Biographical sketch
FERDINAND EUGENE DANIEL
Born in Emporia, Virginia, Ferdinand Eugene Daniel (1839-1914) was the son of Hester Jordan Adams and R. W. T. Daniel. His family moved to Vicksburg and then to Jackson, Mississippi, where he studied both law and medicine. In 1861, Daniel enlisted in Company K of the 18th Mississippi Infantry of the Confederate Army, but his service in that regiment was short-lived. He left to complete his medical degree and graduated from the New Orleans School of Medicine in 1862. Daniel rejoined the Confederate Army as a Surgeon and managed a number of hospitals in Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi. Immediately after the Civil War, he established a medical practice in Galveston, Texas, and taught anatomy and surgery at the Texas Medical College from 1867 through 1868. Daniel returned to Jackson to practice medicine and was appointed sanitary inspector for the National Board of Health of Mississippi in 1879. A year later, he moved back to Texas, where he served as secretary of the state quarantine department from 1892 through 1898 and as president of the American International Congress on Tuberculosis from 1905 through 1906. https://legacy.lib.utexas.edu/taro/utcah/02745/cah-02745.html

The date of the copyright in his book is 1899, so he wrote it over the 30 years that had transpired since the close of the war. It sounds interesting, and the introduction starts off with a discourse on grammatical usages and pronunciations which I found amusing.
