Robert Engle | 76 comments oops.
It has me put that in the box above the message when you do a new post so I thought it would automatically link to it.

message 4: by Abcdarian (new)

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Done. Don't know why the link didn't work for you; sounds like it should have.

message 5: by Robert (new)

Robert Engle | 76 comments Thanks. 2 corrections.
You gave P.T. Barnum a new author page instead of using his existing one.
David Farragut isn't an author, just a name in the story title.

message 6: by Abcdarian (new)

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Fixed. Is there no author for the Young Midshipman story?

message 7: by Robert (new)

Robert Engle | 76 comments None listed on the contents page or where it appears in the book. I expect Olive Beaupré Miller wrote it herself using what was common knowledge or stories passed around. A lot of stories in this series are hers or rewritten for a young audience by her.
David Farragut was a well known naval figure and got his start at age 9or11 so telling a story about him fits in well.
