Stories of New Jersey by Frank Stockton

Frank R. Stockton's stories recreate the events and moods of New Jersey from the days of the Lenni-Lenape Indians and the Dutch colonists to the expolits of New Jerseyans in the Mexican War. Here are the colorful historical and legendary figures of New Jersey's past: colonials who fought, traded with, and were captured by Indians; the perpetrators of New Jersey's own Tea Party; revolutionary heroes and heroines; frontiersmen, early inventors, schoolmasters, doctors, and privateersmen. Some of their stories have been told many times, but rarely as well. These tales are reproduced exactly as they first appeared in 1896, in a book which remained in print until 1945 and which has remained so popular over the years that it has in itself become a part of New Jersey's history. The book's turn-of-the-century flavor is enhanced by many illustrations, including drawings by twenty-one artists that provide realistic detail in the style of a bygone era.

Amy finally found sonic. Hey sorry im late. How was the game she said to him. Good we won and i made the winning goal! He said. Amy asked sonic to come with her. Finally after a long walk theyre at the top of a hill with a great view of the ocean. I brought some food. You want some? She said. Sure he said back. After they were done eating it was night and they were looking up at the stars. Lets text our moms and tell them we wont be home tobight. Good idea he said back to her. After they texted their moms they were sound asleep.
