Name of previous owner inside. My mother. Private collection. "Because of his deep interest in, and knowledge of American History, Hervey Allen undertook to write a saga of colonial times--in Pennsylvania, the Ohio country, and New York State. It was to be called The Disinherited. The protagonist was one Salathiel Albine. Mr Allen finished the first three volumes of this great novel: The Forest And The Fort, Bedford Villiage, and Toward The Morning. He had written a section of the fourth volume--The City In The Dawn--when death cut short his labors. Fortunately the completed chapters bring Salathiel Albine at last from the forest to the city, the symbol of man's pilgrimage from savagery to civilization.."
