The picture above shows Jim in his early years when he served the household of Stonewall Jackson as a stylish and obedient servant. Whenever guests arrived at the Jackson household, Jim would become incredibly excited and energetic. He always looked forward to the sight of a pile of traveling trunks on the veranda, as it meant that he would get to play the violin and enjoy a fine meal. Playing the violin delighted Missus Jackson, who was proud to have taught such a skilled musician. Having an accomplished servant like Jim elevated her status as a charitable and generous woman.
The arrival of guests at Jackson’s household was a stylish event, awakening all of Jim’s energies and enthusiasm. No sight was more pleasing or welcome to Jim than a pile of traveling trunks out on the veranda, for it was then that he foresaw fine eating and the opportunity to play the violin, which made the missus mighty happy.
