But follow her directions closely, as you value your lives;" and he left the house" ; "Opening a Chestnut Burr Is a story of the development of a noble character from one quite the reverse" ; the author's second novel ; E. P. Roe "was educated at Williams College and Auburn Theological Seminary. When he was ready to enter the ministry the war broke out and his intense patriotism sent him to the front as chaplain of the Harris Light Cavalry (Second New York Volunteers). He participated in numerous engagements, including Dahlgren's famous raid on Richmond, and had a narrow escape in the fight on the banks of the James River. Subsequently President Lincoln appointed him hospital chaplain at Fortress Monroe. At the close of the war he became pastor of a Presbyterian church at Highland Falls, New York, one mile north of West Point, and remained there until 1874, when he removed to Cornwall. There he established a fruit farm and nursery, and divided his attention between horticulture and literature. It was in 1871 that his first novel [Without a Home] was written. His next novel "Opening a Chestnut Burr," was written to test whether he should devote himself to preaching or writing, and its success determined him to abandon the pulpit for the larger ministry of fiction. Other novels followed rapidly, averaging a new book every year. It is fair to compute that two million people have read one or more of his works."--The Cosmopolitan, 1888 ; top of spine chipped, else G. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 006727
