Charlton, brother of Robert, was a young distinguished Doctor in Savannah before he died at an early age. In the preface Robert writes of his brother - "But, as I have added some specimens of my brother's poetry, it would be doing his memory and talents an injustice, were I to preserve a total silence, He possessed a mind and a genius that would have done credit to any profession; and, in a few years, he would have won himself a name, both as physician and a poet, that would have descended as a lasting inheritance to his children."
