Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1866 Excerpt: ...men, and all that. Do write to him. O, how I miss you 1" Then followed a few lines, badly written and badly spelled, from John himself.

The matter was, therefore, once more settled, and they began to make preparations for their summer flight. Miss Prigott always went after mountain-air, somewhere.
