Most of Sylvanus Cobb, Jr.'s stories for Bonner's New York Ledger appeared under his own name, but a few bore the pseudonym "Col. Walter B. Dunlap."(1) It was first used for "A Startling Adventure," which introduced a series of thirty "Forest Sketches" published in 1856 and 1857. These were followed by seventy-two "Forest Adventures" and one hundred and two "Sketches of Adventure," all under the same nom de plume. Only two serial stories were published under the Colonel's name, "The Hunted Life," which began in the Ledger September 21, 1861, and "Lorinda, the Princess; or, The Sultana's Diadem," in 1884.
For the only novel published by Beadle under this name, see Cobb.
