  INTRODUCTION

  "A LITTLE MAID OF OLD MAINE" is a true story of the brave effort of twogirls to bring help to a little settlement on the Maine coast at thetime of the War of the Revolution. Parson Lyon, the father of Melvina,was a friend and correspondent of Washington, and the capture of theEnglish gunboat by the Machias men is often referred to in history as"The Lexington of the Seas," being the first naval battle after theLexington encounter.

  The story is based on facts, and its readers cannot fail to beinterested and touched by the courage and patriotism of Rebecca and AnnaWeston as they journeyed through the forest after the powder that was tomake possible the conquest of America's foe.
