One of the first woman journalist in America! Anne Royall.
Having written about General Coffee in my historical fiction, I found the article particularly pleasing. Nothing like a first-hand impression, and nice to see that my own impression of the man was mirrored by this remarkable young lady. Thanks for shining the light upon another part of history I was previously unaware of, and that’s a book I’d enjoy reading.
