Hlow A Great Story Was
The history of any great and succress
ful undertakinl is ulwayy Wresting,
therefore at the 14k of b.i g a.euned of
violati:,g personal confidence, we tell
our readers of the origin of a :amous
story of the late war. The publishers of
the Chicago LEDGER wanted a story
which, besides being a love story of great
merit, should vividly describe the thrill
tlg events of the battle of Gettgseblrg
and the siege of Richmond. One ala
- thor after another failed in the work,
and at last the famous St. George Rath
burns was approached on the -object.
He demand. d :a fabuilou . re, for the
work, but it was paidl. and the story ware
actually written to order. It is however,
printed und:.r the peln name of "Hugh
Allen." It is declared by critice, who
have been shown the advance sheets, to
be the best story of the war ever written.
The first instalment of it appeared in
No 3, Vol. xxiii of the LEIGER, aid at
once attracted the greatest attention.
.A private letter from the editor informs
us that in order to reach all class of peo
pie, the publishers of the LEDGEB will
mail the opening chapters of the story
free of charge to all who send in their
names at once. T;he LEDGER is a Iget
paper, and each week gives story matter
to make a dollar book. Address
