Kingston. ________________________________________________________________________ There are three short stories in this little book.
The first thing to say is that the book has no page-numbers, which must be just about unique.
I cannot imagine what the point of this is. The three stories are of roughly equal length.
The first is a story about Nelson purporting to have been written by an admirer whose work at sea kept him near to Nelson. The second story is about farming in the Red River area of North America in the late 1700s or early 1800s.
The weather, with flooding of the river, and the red Indians, made it all rather difficult. The third story is about a young chap who while no more than fourteen distinguishes himself in battle, and is immediately promoted to midshipman.
His bravery and seamanship win him several battles, with their prizes, and he is promoted till he is an Admiral with a baronetcy. Of course there are some jealous people on the way.
But it is a pretty tale, with a pretty girl to be married. ________________________________________________________________________ THE STORY OF NELSON; THE GRATEFUL INDIAN; THE BOATSWAIN’S SON; BY W.H.G.
