Source text (please read only from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28790Harper's Young People is an illustrated weekly publication for children that includes short stories, tales from history, natural history, poetry, puzzles, and other fun. This 25th issue of the serial was published on April 20th, 1880 and in its pages it contains the continuing tales of a young sailor as he plays witness to a great sea hunt and comes into port for the first time, the history of George Washington's life from his marriage and acquisition of Mount Vernon to his appointment as general of the Continental Army, a first-hand account of a bee's mansion tour from their human dinner guest, a visit to the magical grotto where you can swim in the sky and cup silver in the palm of your hand, the story of a pioneer's unexpected wrestling match, and much more. This periodical was published by Harper & Brothers, known today for their publications Harper's Bazaar and Harper's Magazine. (Summary by Jill Engle)
