The Heirloom, by T. Duthie-Lisle (? - ?)
It is not the pleasing office of the writer of fiction to unfold for the delectation of his readers the pages and pictures of the volume of life; and none know better than the true novelist that the wildest schemes which his imagination can conceive, the marvellous combinations which a turn of the magic kaleidoscope of eventualities, and what we misname fortune, may produce, are again and again out acted in real life.

With this apology the incidents of the following story are committed to the criticism of an indulgent, and the writer trusts, a not too severely critical world.

Of course you can! Thanks Chuck!

There is one problem with volume 2 at archive. The last chapter doesn't show correctly, so I used a link to the original scans for that chapter.

This is totally wild and what a fantastic challenge...

I'll claim section 1, please - if I had seen this before you Icequeen I don't think I could've resisted asking to take it as my first solo project!

Also pronunciation on the author's name (I'm British English for reference) Dooth-(like booth)-e? Or Duth-(like buff)-e?

Oh crud! Not sure what happened there. Use this one instead. It should work better.

Section 1 is yours! Thank you!

Yes, this thing is going to be deliciously bad, I can't wait to hear the whole thing!

As far as pronunciation of T.'s last name, use your best judgment. Me personally, I would tend toward the second pronunciation, but I am totally open to either one. And, I am not a stickler on pronunciation, English words are pronounced differently everywhere.
