Excerpt from The Old Gray Homestead, And, the Career of David Noble: Two Full-Length Novels
During the last year or two, I have frequently heard from other readers who voiced disappointment that they could not obtain the earlier stories. Therefore my pleas ure in introducing this new volume is very great, and I am indeed happy over the opportunity this gives me to make the 'novels it contains available once again. The tradition and the heritage of New England are surely ones in which all of us, no matter what our places of birth, can partake; and it is my earnest hope that, through these two novels and in some slight way, I have suc ceeded in interpreting this heritage and this tradition, not only to New Englanders themselves, but to the rest of the country as well.
