|New York Evening Express - March 18, 1865|
This is the title of the last story that Herman Melville wrote. It was originally published in Putnam's Magazine, and is now re-issued in a single graceful volume by Peterson & Brothers, of Philadelphia. It is the story of one of the Revolutionary fathers,--Israel Potter. It is written with a faithfulness to nature not often met with in a purely fictitious narrative. The adventures are real enough to belong to history, yet romantic enough to enchant us as in a fable.The Refugee is the pirated 1865 edition of Israel Potter (New York: G. P. Putnam & Co., 1855).
