#50: "An Armistice" by Alice B. Haven

I wasn't able to get this 1859 Thanksgiving story out last week, but I wanted to put it up before starting on Fitz-James O'Brien's Christmas stories. So here's the tale of two men, a woman, a bad cold, and an old-fashioned Connecticut Thanksgiving.

Sadly, Alice B. Haven died in 1863. She must have had a good bit of popularity as a writer, since, as the link points out, a memoir of her life came out in 1865. She was apparently primarily a novelist.

Anyway, the story is complete in one part. I swear. It's also available at Cornell.
