Description

This book has been written by an American novelist, noted for his widely successful historical romances. "Coniston" begins: First I am to write a love-story of long ago, of a time some little while after General Jackson had got into the White House and had shown the world what a real democracy was. The Era of the first six Presidents had closed, and a new Era had begun. I am speaking of political Eras. Certain gentlemen, with a pious belief in democracy, but with a firmer determination to get on top, arose, and got on top. So many of these gentlemen arose in the different states, and they were so clever, and they found so many chinks in the Constitution to crawl through and steal the people's chestnuts, that the Era may be called the Boss-Era. After the Boss came along certain things without souls, but of many minds, and found more chinks in the Constitution: bigger chinks, for the things were getting bigger, and they stole more chestnuts. But I am getting far ahead of my love-story - and of my book.
