JEMIMA O’KEEFY. — A sentimental tale

(The Western Monthly Review, Cincinnati, Nov 1827, S. 384–393)
  • Timothy Flint


One person, says the proverb, is born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and another with a wooden ladle. One person is born to empire, and another to saw wood, and make ditches. These truths are clearly set forth in the story of Jemima O’Keefy, which I proceed to relate, premising, that the facts are furnished me by a very respectable citizen of this vicinity, who has lived in the country from its first settlement, and knows as many of the early incidents of its history, as any other man.
