Description - Southold Reminiscences by Joseph N Hallock
When the primary value of bay-front property was the privilege of harvesting seaweed, state legislator and Southold newspaperman Joseph Nelson Hallock was stealing watermelon from "Peter Gils" Well's patch and fighting for the privilege to "pass the water" at Southold Academy. In the spirit of Mary Ellen Chase's turn-of-the-century account of life in rural New England, Hallock offers his firsthand impressions of the difficulties and pleasures ofNorth Fork life one hundred years ago. With a recipe for samp porridge and tales of power brokering in Albany, Southold Reminiscences is sure to inspire.
