Available for proofreading: The Senator’s Bride

The Senator's BrideOur latest Distributed Proofreaders project is another novel by prolific 19th-century author Mrs. Alex. McVeigh Miller. The Senator’s Bride was written early in Mrs. Miller’s career, during her time living and working in Washington, D. C. While the book was written before her career-making hit, The Bride of the Tomb, it was actually published a few months later, serialized in Street & Smith’s New York Weekly from July to September of 1881 to capitalize on the author’s success in the competing New York Family Story Paper. The edition being used for this transcription project is a later paper-covered reprint of the story.
