"A STATEMENT of the facts in which this book began may gratify the curiosity of. Horatio Alger Horatio Alger, Jr. (Janu J ), briefly a Unitarian minister, was a popular nineteenth-century author of juvenile fiction.

His "rags to riches" stories portrayed poor boys in America making good. Horatio's parents were Olive Augusta Fenno and Horatio Alger, Sr., a. He also collaborated with his cousin, William Rounseville Alger, on the official biography of Edwin Forrest, the infamous theatrical actor. In order to supplement his well-worn depiction of city life, Alger embarked on three trips out West, inandto gather new material.

It is generally accepted that Horatio Alger collaborated with his cousin, William Rounseville Alger (for whom the book is exclusively credited), with Horatio writing the biographical chapters and William writing about the psychological and historic aspects of the theater.

William Alger's researches into the nature and history of friendship resulted first in the essay in the North American Review, which focused on men's friendships, and a dozen years later in the publication of a page book, The Friendships of Women.

Alger's book, weighty in every way, concentrated on the friendships of women with each other.
