    The following is a letter from R. L. Dabney to a seminary student. The context is that the War is over, the South is reduced to poverty, and Dabney is telling him what textbooks to try to borrow from pastors in his presbytery.

    They did seem to have more advanced learning at that time in many ways.

    Presuming this is Union in Richmond, not Union in NYC, but in either event, it would probably result in a far better theological education than either would offer today.

    That's correct. Thanks for clarifying.

    To correct myself, it would have been at Hampden Sydney, not Richmond, at the time. Which makes sense, because I was thinking that Richmond wasn't in any shape to be hosting new students in 1865.
