    Oops, sorry about that Coly. I should have thought to change the subject. It was about her reflections on her days in Virginia. I need to look into my files

      Do you know what the manuscript is about?

      I am also starting the topic here to keep out of the trivia thread.

        She recently [1928] wrote Mrs. H.R. McKay, of Luray, who has been in correspondence with her, that she would have two books ready for the printer this last year, one of them a work for children and the other Silhouettes of Virginia.  The latter was largely based on the writer’s recollections of Luray.  It is not known where these books are actually on the market.”  Regretfully, there is no indication that Silhouettes of Virginia ever went to press.

         

        Pauline “Lena” Carrington Rust Bouve died in New York City on December 2, 1928 as a result of complications from a surgery.  Her daughter, Nan (Ann Winston) Gravvett was said to have inherited her mother’s ability to write and, by 1928, had “made a name as a writer.”      


        Here's an added bit of interest regarding the CW...


        "having removed to Massachusetts about 1899, she married another famous poet and author, Thomas Tracy Bouve (1875-1938), who, at the time, was a “young Harvard man, whose name is frequently found in the leading magazines as author of clever short stories and clever poems.”  Thomas Bouve as also the son of Edward Tracy Bouve, formerly a major in the 4th Massachusetts Cavalry during the Civil War and also, through is mother’s family, a distant cousin of President Abraham Lincoln through the early Lincoln families of the 17th century in Hingham, Massachusetts."

                Robert, I know this isn't what you're looking for but just as an aside, Alderman Library (University of Virginia) has two copies of Mrs. Bouve's Their Shadows Before: A Story of the Southampton Insurrection published in 1899.

                  Yes, there was a time in the early 20th century when some predicted the book would rise to greater fame than Uncle Tom's Cabin. Of course, it didn't, but the novel was one of those analyzed by Mary Kemp Davis in her book Nat Turner Before the Bar of Judgement: Fictional Treatments of the Southampton Slave Rebellion (LSU Press, 1999).

                  In short, Davis discusses Bouve’s novel as showing Nat Turner as a charismatic preacher as opposed to the more radical portrayals.  Furthermore, as recent as 2003 or 2004, the novel was brought up again in a lecture series (Race, Ethnicity, and Constructions of National Identity Lecture Series) at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse, where Joseph Young lectured on the “Erasure and Retrieval of the Public Memory: Artful Deceit in Mary Johnston’s ‘Prisoner’s of Hope’; and Subtle Disclosure in Pauline Bouve’s Their Shadows Before.”

                  Bouve also wrote a number of popular childrens' books from the Tales of the Mayflower Children to Lamplight Tales
