Title: Aunt Jane's Nieces on Vacation
Authors: Baum, Lyman Frank
Keywords: juvenile novel
Issue Date: 2022
Abstract: The title is true enough to begin with. John Merrick and his nieces, return to their vacation home in Millville, in upstate New York. The three girls, Patsy Doyle, Beth De Graf, and Louise Merrick Weldon, become bored with vacationing and want to participate more in town life. Beth is a regular reader of newspapers, so with Uncle John's money, they decide to establish a newspaper of their own, with stereotype plates from the wire service liberally peppered with local news and gossip. The latter is primarily handled by Louise. Her husband, Arthur Weldon, has his name highest on the masthead (as was common with female-run organizations at the time),which gets him forced into a duel with one of the yokels. The main plot, however, comes from the problems introduced by greedy mill owners in the area attempting to scam the town. Most of the employees are white ethnics whom the locals hold in contempt.
