Excerpt: The idea of the following tale was conceived on reading, many years ago, ?The Memoirs of an American Lady,? by Mrs. Grant, of Laggan; and the work partly finished about that time. The reader acquainted with the book referred to will, perhaps, wonder at the indiscretion of the author of the Dutchman?s Fireside in thus, as it were, provoking a comparison with one of the finest sketches of early American manners ever drawn.
