1862-1932, P. G. (n.d.). The Seats of the Mighty, Volume 1. Retrieved from

Introduction: It was in the winter of 1892, when on a visit to French Canada, that I made up my mind I would write the volume which the public knows as ?The Seats of the Mighty,? but I did not begin the composition until early in 1894. It was finished by the beginning of February, 1895, and began to appear in ?The Atlantic Monthly? in March of that year. It was not my first attempt at historical fiction, because I had written ?The Trail of the Sword? in the year 1893, but it was the first effort on an ambitious scale, and the writing of it was attended with as much searching of heart as enthusiasm.
