Bliss

After having given up the hope of ever seeing a copy of Adam Badeau's The Vagabond, it occured to me today (as I procrastinated from my history paper) to type his name and work into google (aren't I smart?)--and the first thing that appeared was the text of the book, lovely and free and utterly adorable.

(Badeau was a good friend/confidante of Edwin Booth, possibly (as implied in Gene Smith's American Gothic) unrequitedly in love with him. He is adorable and sweet.)

Read "A Night with the Booths," here:
