Klappentext

Excerpt from Five Hundred Dollars: And Other Stories of New England Life Of the stories which are collected in this volume, four - "The Village Convict," "Eli," "Five Hundred Dollars," and "The New Minister's Great Opportunity" - were first published in the "Century Magazine." "By the Sea" and "Saint Patrick" are now printed for the first time. With reference to the story, "In Madeira Place," originally published in the "Atlantic Monthly," it should be said that it was written before the passage of the present federal Civil Service laws, and that in the more important custom-houses the political practices to which it refers have now been in great measure corrected by the new system of examinations. In many branches of the public service, however, both State and National, such abuses remain. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
