To save money during the war the US Government printed bank notes in green and black to pay troops and suppliers. If they can get past the painfully soppy cover, readers will find this a pleasant, undemanding story that's most notable for providing a perspective rarely seen in children's literature.

And his being superseded, in consequence of his apparent neglect of this last command, was so far from being a harsh or severe proceeding, that it was plainly inevitable. In itself, it seems, that depriving men of a lucrative branch of their profession, merely because, under certain circumstances, it may become dangerous to their stability, is very like the receipt of Sheepface in the farce, who kills his master's sheep to prevent their dying. For me, the political intrigue was fascinating, showing the lengths people like Michinaga would go to in order to secure and maintain their position.

Pembroke, with some difficulty, stopped a torrent of interrogations, eked out with signs, nods, and winks; and, having at length convinced the bookseller that he did him too much honour in supposing him an emissary of exiled royalty, he explained his actual business. Cromwell's notorious killing of perhaps 3,000 soldiers and an unknown number of civilians during the sack of Drogheda in September 1649 and of slightly fewer at Wexford a month later were the largest but not the most vicious episodes in which many hundreds were killed in cold blood, often clubbed to death to save bullets.

Mucklewrath, who had begun to recover from her hysterics, whimpered forth, ``She wadna say naething against what the minister proposed; he was e'en ower gude for his trade, and she hoped to see him wi' a dainty decent bishop's gown on his back; a comelier sight than your Geneva cloaks and bands, I wis.''
