Kennedy Square

Серия: "-"

1911. Smith had several careers: engineer, artist, illustrator and short story writer. His success in engineering included planning the foundationsfor the Statue of Liberty. He traveled frequently to Europe and became known for his portraits and illustration. Smith was an entertaining after-dinner storyteller and in his fifties he decided to commit his stories to paper and is remembered for his Colonel Carter novels. The book begins: On the precise day on which this story opens-some sixty or more years ago, to be exact-a bullet-headed, merry-eyed, mahogany-colored young darky stood on the top step of an old-fashioned, high-stoop house, craning his head up and down and across Kennedy Square in the effort to get the first glimpse of his master, St. George Wilmot Temple, attorney and counsellor-at-law, who was expected home from a ducking trip down the bay.
