Samantha at the St. Louis Exposition

by Marietta Holley

Samantha, as unique and widely know as any book character ever created, is at her best in the "episodin'" bits of wit, pathos, and clear visioned common sense. In the story, Josiah Allen discovers that his farm had come into the possession of the Allen family the year of the Louisiana purchase, that his ancestors had paid fifteen dollars for it, the same sum, he said, "with the orts left off," that was given for Louisiana. The Allens celebrate this discovery by taking a trip to the Exposition. A group of interesting companions serve only to enhance the characteristic observations of Samantha, which are better than ever.
