Mister Ron's Basement #554
Frederic Thomas Somerby, writing under the pen name of 'Cymon' ran a column of sketches of the people and doings in the beautiful, quaint town of Newburyport, for the readers of The Boston Post. In 1852, he published a collection of these pieces under the title 'Hits and Dashes, or A Medley of Sketches and Scraps Touching People and Things.'
The author tackles a tale of a fifteen year old boy and a young lass in what could best be tastefully described as 'A Situation.'
Time: approx five and a half minutes
