All did justice to the plain meal, and never thought of envying the thousands who, in their rich uptown mansions, were sitting down at the same hour to elaborate dinners costing more than their entire week's board.

Paul the Peddler, from , follows the typical Alger format: Paul Hoffman is a poor but industrious year-old who ekes out a living for himself and his mother hawking whatever he can on the desperate streets of New York City This is a charming work, its hard-bitten romance tempered by its celebration of virtue and strength of character.

This device eliminates the usual rescue by an influential rich man, but it does still require a reputable rich man to vouch for Paul honesty in circumstances that would never occur in the real world. A fun and fine read. May 28, Rogue-van the Bookman rated it liked it Shelves: fic , rvo-reviewed.

He follows Alger's principles: keep at it, adapt, learn the tricks of the trade, stay honest, and be ready to fight when necessary. Not totally predictable--one of Alger's better stories.
