Born in Philadelphia, Charles Godfrey Leland Leland received his early schooling in Massachusetts and Philadelphia, where Bronson Alcott was one of his teachers.
O'Brien states that Bellew's "imaginative power and sense of humor are not surpassed, perhaps, by any living caricaturist."
O'Brien describes Leland as "fantastic, and frequently inimitable."
O'Brien reminisces about "[p]oor North, the Republican philosopher, who hoped so much when he sought this country, and who came to so melancholy an end after he had tried it."
O'Brien mentions Doesticks, "whose humor is entirely original, and whose only fault is that he has given us too much of a good thing."
