A Little Girl in Old Philadelphia

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.8 stars; 4 reviews)

The early youth of an old town has a certain simplicity like the youth of human life. Its struggles, its romance, its unfolding come down through the earnest hands that have labored for its welfare and left imperishable monuments. To the legacies of remembrances you have had handed down to you, I add this little story of a long ago time, a posy culled from quaint gardens.

With sincere regard,

I know only the basics of early American history and have been interested to find in other novels frequent references to the roles the Friends/Quaker played. Lots of new small insights in this one. Enjoyable and well read.
