The articles are mostly from American newspapers between 1845 and 1857 while George Burgess was in America and British newspapers from 1857 to about 1901. For historical accuracy poor spelling and bad grammar (and American spellings) in the transcripts are faithfully reproduced. Also see the 'Downend Parish Magazine, August 1905' for further serialised Story's by Victorian authors. Also see the scanned images of some of the original newspaper articles; and newspaper articles by Fanny Fern 1811-1872, an American newspaper columnist.
