Overview

Pirate Gold by F. J. Stimson

Not a pirate story, "for the pirate gold lay in a chest, in the safe of a Boston bank; and, symbolically, it shone on the head of Mercedes de Sota, the child of the captured pirate, [...] Yet no tale of adventure could be more absorbing than is this story of the single-hearted devotion of an old-fashioned bank clerk."

"Although the story is a study of character rather than a chronicle of adventures, there is stirring incident to quicken the pulse, and one catches charming glimpses of the Boston of 1854 and thereabouts, when Wendell Phillips fired the abolitionists, and it took "the whole State militia" to accomplish the return of one runaway slave to his master. The humour, which abounds, is of the wholesome, full-blooded kind."
