Family Memorials (Classic Reprint)

Antoinette Bradshaw Shattuck

Excerpt from Family Memorials About ten years more or less, after the generation in advance of our own has all died off, it occurs to us all at once: There! I can ask my old friend what he knows of that picture, which must be a Copley, of that house and its legends, about which there is such a mystery. He (or she) must know all about them. Too late! Too late! - O. W. Holmes. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
