An appetizer to tide you over until next week

The Dragon Lady of Stockbridge will start up next week on Friday, August 31. For this week, I’ve posted a letter from George S. Boutwell, who was Secretary of the Treasury in the first Grant Administration, to his daughter Georgianna, who loved politics and gossip, about a meeting with an old acquaintance of his named Israel Farnsworth. It connects “The Troubles of the Farnsworths” with Dragon Lady. You can link to it by clicking where it says “Boutwell letter about Israel Farnsworth” under the picture heading up the top of the page.

I enjoy history because it helps me understand people. I'm writing fiction for much the same reason.
