Attractive issue of this adventure weekly. Chromolithograph front wrapper shows a bluecoat-clad Continental soldier facing off against a group of charging redcoats on a dirt country road. Caption below reads: "'Back! back!' she cried; 'advance a step and I fire!' Little Lou kept backing all the time in the direction of the thicket. The astounded redcoats dared not fire, but kept following her up, wondering why a boy should thus hold them at bay." A far better than average dime novel (actually, "Price 5 Cents") or "penny dreadful," with text printed in two columns.
