Mister Ron's Basement #1280

Frederic Thomas Somerby, who reported on the doings in Newburyport, Massachusetts and the general neighborhood (including parts of Maine and New Hampshire) for the old Boston Post in the 1850s under the pen name of 'Cymon,' published a collection called 'Hits and Dashes; or A Medley of Sketches and Scraps, Touching People and Things' back in 1852.

In today's tale two cold and weary travelers spend the night at the home of a farmer who has a beautiful daughter -- no it's not what you think -- in a delightful story called 'A Gentle Hint.'

Time: approx seven and a half minutes
