Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Kirke Paulding was an American writer and, for a time, the United States Secretary of the Navy. James Kirke Paulding was born on August 22, 1778, in the state of New York. Paulding was chiefly self-educated. He became a close friend of Washington Irving. With Irving, Paulding proposed a literary project. As he described, "one day in a frolicsome mood, we broached the idea of a little periodical merely for our own amusement, and that of the town, for neither of us anticipated any further circulation." The result was Salmagundi-a continuation of which by himself proved a failure. Along with Irving, Paulding was associated with the "Knickerbocker group," a group which also included William Cullen Bryant, Gulian Crommelin Verplanck, Fitz-Greene Halleck, Joseph Rodman Drake, Robert Charles Sands, Lydia Maria Child, and Nathaniel Parker Willis
