Alice Bradv takes the historic part of Betsy Ross, the lady who made the first Hag which contained the. Stars and Stripes. A quaint feature it'is stated, is the" representation of the severe Quaker folks who at that time were so powerful a section of the community. Tlie story centres round the love affairs of two sisters, whose two lovers both become more or less fugitives because each thought he had killed a . man. This exciting plot is further complicated by the partisan feeling which ran so high at that time between the loyalists and the rebels.
