Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from Stories of the Island World Away off in the centre of the great and thriving State of Indiana (the Hoosier State it is called, and a great many very worthy people believe that it is as yet, for the most part, an unbroken wilderness, and that the inhabitants universally wear homespun frocks and shirts, and buckskin leggins and mocca sins, and eat hoe-cakes for a living - all of which, I will tell you, is a great mistake) - away off in this supposed wilderness there lives a family in which there are four Children, two boys and two girls. There was a fifth, but years ago he left home to become a sailor. He was not heard from for a long, long time. Once, indeed, a letter came home, writ ten in China; and again news reached his father and mother that he had been seen in California. When he had been three years away, his daguerreotype, showing him in a sailor's blue jacket, and with tan ned cheeks, and great rough hands, reached his old home, just, as it were, to say that he was still alive.
