Books o
Dotily Madison, the Nation's Hostess
by Elizabeth Lippincott Dean $3.00
Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Co.
Elizabeth Lippincott Dean writes
clearly but somewhat sentimentally
in 'Dolly Madison" to emphasize the
human interest element, or all of the
incidents reflect the interesting and
personal experiences of this charming
lady. There is a touch of the intimate
which focuses the attention on how
the historical events of the times
affected people. A different cast is
brought to history and another slant
is seen upon the notables of the
times to fall naturally into events
with their contemporaries who may be
placed easily in their chronological
order.
Dolly Madison's life in Virginia is
portrayed in a lively manner, show-

the mansions, Harewood, where Dolly
Payne married Thomas Madison, at
Monticello where the Madisons often
were guests of Jefferson, and at Mont-
pelier, the mountain home of Thomas
Medison and his wife.
Dolly Pay.ne who was to be the
wife of the future fourth president,
went to Philadelphia at a very early
age to. live with her family there.
After %he had made friends and met
the society of the town, she married
John Todd, an army man. Shortly, a
plague broke out in the city and rag-
ed so devastatingly that many were
forced to leave the town. Dolly's hus-
band and her child became ill with
it and then Dolly herself. The sad-
ness came when she recovered to find
that her husband was dead. Her
child, Payne Todd, grew to be a care-
less and sophisticated man travelling
and living on the continent extrava-
