The Casting Away of Mrs. Lecks and Mrs. Aleshinee


LONG Title, this one! Its actually
"The Casting Away of Mrs. Lecks and Mrs. Aleshine"

Written by Frank R. Stockton

This is the only book that both Tom and Adelaide have read in "Why Adelaide Went to the Convention", a serial that was included in the 1895 collection, "Katherine's Yesterday." Published in 1886, they would have known this as a recent book. Its shipwreck tale became a staple in many libraries and on required reading lists well into the next century.
