Synopsis: The source of inspiration for this mystical tale of “Seeds of The Little People” comes from essays written by my great granddaddy Josh David Hamilton almost one hundred years ago. A few years ago I found these papers-essays and two diaries in an old antique desk. We found these essays while engaging in a renovation project on the desk. The back wall of the desk slid down and there were the papers ... about two hundred. His papers take into account only the events in his generation of the early 20th century. All the characters and places are real with the exception of course of the seeming impossible provability of the legendary Garden of Miss Franklin and this ‘other earth world’ of Arthur and Jonas. The events portrayed in regards to my great grandparents are taken almost word for word from the essays. Passed down for generations were stories of Miss Franklin’s amazing Garden. The essays gave detailed accounts of this Garden. Being it was a family tradition to pass this story on to each Hamilton generation, I was very familiar with this tale of Miss Franklin’s Garden of unbelievable beauty. After thoroughly going through these papers, I decided to compose a story of a probable conclusion to these essays based on my great granddaddy’s account of this most unusual event. This story portrays how our present day Hamilton generation could play its part in fulfilling the purpose of the Garden and its connection with ‘the world of the little people. We remain completely baffled as to why he portrayed this detailed elaborate story as if it were an actual true experience. We are also mystified as to his vision into the future in regards to the field of genetic seed engineering and aviation.
