Excerpt from Widow Guthrie: A Novel

Among those Virginians who, some before, others after the War of Independence, settled upon the fertile lands bordering on Broad River, in the State of Georgia, were the Guthries, Macfarlanes, and Ludwells. With considerable properties at their coming, they had availed themselves of abundant opportunities, and become what was then regarded wealthy. Dennis Macfarlane, when about thirty-five, married Louisa Pollard, whose people had come into the settlement later. Alan Guthrie, considerably his senior, five or six years after, being a child less widower of fifty, took to wife Hester Pollard, who was ten years older than her sister. Some time prior to the incidents hereinafter narrated, the brothers-in-law, while holding and continuing to work their plantations, removed a day's journey south to Clarke, a village of about five hundred inhabitants, situated on an elevated plain sixty miles west of Augusta.
