†"See Charles Jacobs Peterson."
† That "Harry Cavendish" was a pen name of Charles J. Peterson was shown by Ralph Adimari in a letter to me November 27, 1953.
† The last installment of a serial, "Cruizings [sic] n the Last War." which was begun in The Casket, Philadelphia, in July, 1840, was signed "Harry Danforth."
† "The Reefer of '76," originally appeared as a serial in Graham's Magazine, beginning in the issue for January, 1841, and ending in December of the same year.
† "Harry Cavendish" was the title of a serial which first appeared in Graham's Magazine, beginning in the January, 1842, number. There was no by-line, but the Introduction was signed "Harry Danforth," which was a pseudonym of Charles Jacobs Peterson (Dictionary of Anonyms and Pseudonyms, New York, 1920, 241), co-editor of Peterson's Magazine.
† "Cruisings, etc." was somewhat modified when it was reprinted in 1850 as a book by the publisher T. B. Peterson. The by-line on the title page was "Charles J. Peterson, author of 'The Reefer of Seventy-six,' etc." Since the publisher was a brother of Charles J. Peterson, the name is probably correct. The book is signed at the end "Harry Danforth," which is also the name of the hero of the story.
† In an advertisement of "Cruisings" in Brother Jonathan, June 19, 1852, the author is given as "Harry Danforth, author of 'The Reefer of '76', etc."
† Dime Novel No. 2, "The Privateer's Cruise," by "Harry Cavendish" was published by Beadle in June, 1860, and was reprinted by him with the same by-line but with the title "The Young Privateer; or The Pirate's Stronghold" in Half-Dime Library No. 128. This is a reprint of "Harry Cavendish" which appeared in Graham's Magazine in 1842.
† Dime Novel No. 7, which was reprinted by Beadle also as Pocket Novels, no. 235 and Boy's Library, (octavo edition), no. 265, appeared under its original title "The Reefer of '76." The author was given as "Harry Cavendish."
† Conclusion: "Cruisings, etc.," when published as a book, had given for its author "Charles J. Peterson, author of 'The Reefer of '76.'" But "The Reefer of '76" when published by Beadle as Dime Novel No. 7, had "Harry Cavendish" given as the author. Therefore "Harry Cavendish" is a pen name of Charles J. Peterson.
† When "Harry Cavendish" appeared in Graham's Magazine in 1842, its author was given as "Harry Danforth," a known pseudonym of Charles J. Peterson. When it appeared under the title "The Privateer's Cruise" as Dime Novel No. 2, the author was given as "Harry Cavendish." Peterson, therefore, is again shown to be "Harry Cavendish."
† Correction made as per Volume 3.
