A Partnership For Life the Writer's Garret article

Leornian Feldham was one of the most influential people in Seymore Wainscott's life. In this letter to Merrinand, Seymore speaks movingly about Leornian's character, particularly in terms of the treachery of Shifton Snachitt, who robbed Leornian of his livelihood. "Success," wrote Seymore, "is not the trappings, but the doing and the being that prosper within the individual." Seymore also gives a detailed account of his own contribution to balloon flight, as well as important insights into the relationship between his parents and his soon-to-be in-laws -- Leornian and Coca Feldham.

Just David by Eleanor H. Porter

By Al R. Young Reviewed by Nancy Young

In Just David by Eleanor H. Porter, David is no ordinary boy. Orphaned and wandering, he falls asleep in the barn of a farm to which his travel takes him. The farmer and his wife, bereft of their own son, take David in and raise him. The adjustment on both sides supplies much of the tension in the narrative, and a good bit of humor. David's talents and disposition also set him apart from his new-found home and from the community as a whole... Read more »
