A Little Maid of Old Maine

by Alice Turner Curtis

A Little Maid of Old Maine is a true story of the brave effort of two girls to bring help to a little settlement on the Maine coast at the time of the War of the Revolution. Parson Lyon, the father of Melvina, was a friend and correspondent of Washington, and the capture of the English gunboat by the Machias men is often referred to in history as ''The Lexington of the Seas,'' being the first naval battle after the Lexington encounter.
