Description
Excerpt: VOL. I. Chapter 1. IN WHICH ONE OF THE VIRGINIANS VISITS HOME. ON the library wall of one of the most famous writers of America, there hang two crossed swords, which his relatives wore in the great War of Independence. The one sword was gallantly drawn in the service of the king, the other was the weapon of a brave and honoured republican soldier. The possessor of the harmless trophy has earned for himself a name alike honoured in his ancestors? country, and his own, where genius such as his has always a peaceful welcome.
