" At seven, Frances' ' Stories ' were the de-
light of her brothers and sisters. We can well
imagine no day dreary, and no evening could be
long in that household, a circle which in later
years has become familiar through her pen as
' Vagabondia.' The first essay at a story that
might go beyond the approving audience of
'Vagabondia' was attempted in her 13th year;
written and read, not told, to her two sisters,
when she was nearly 15." — From the Boston
" Sunday Herald."
