This copy has a full-page inscription on the front fly leaf: Wishing You, dear Bolton many happy "returns of the day." with love of sister ALB. March 23, 1911.We have been unable to determine with certainty that it is in the hand of the author, but I believe it to be so. The register of Alice Brown's papers at the University of New Hampshire Library contains a number of references to letters written by Alice Brown to a Mr. Bolton in the 1920s and 1930s.

An old ink stamp on the front fly leaf is from a circulating library in Eureka, Nevada. Internally quite t ight & fairly fresh. A tale, entirely in verse, of the Mormons. This is an early edition, apparently the first US edition, but we have seen a citation of an American Routledge edition dated 1871. The LC copies are dated 1872, so this 1871 date may b e spurious.
