She was a frequent contributor to The Ladies’ Home Journal. Eleanor Hallowell Abbott was born on September 22, 1872, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Abbott was the daughter of clergyman Edward Abbott, who edited the journal Literary World; and the granddaughter of noted children’s author Jacob Abbott. Eleanor Hallowell Abbott grew up surrounded by literary and religious luminaries due to her father and grandfather. This resulted her in growing up knowing many famous literary people, like Longfellow and Lowell. This caused her childhood home to be one of great religious and scholarly thought. After attending private schools in Cambridge, she began courses at Radcliffe College. After completing her studies worked as a secretary and teacher at Lowell State Normal School. Here she began to write poetry and short stories, but had little success in the beginning. It was only when Harper’s Magazine accepted two of her poems that she saw promise in her work. This led to her winning three short-story prizes offered by Collier’s and The Delineator.

What could be better than going holiday shopping through a whole series of small, quaint stores full of wonderful and unusual items laid out in elegant or charming displays? Wouldn’t it be great to avoid the traffic and the crowds at big city stores? Imagine feeling relaxed and unrushed, not jostled by other shoppers or fi ghting for the last item of a slightly dubious deep discount that may or may not be there when you fi nally make it through the line to the check out. And then, with bags full of gifts that refl ect the individual personalities of the receivers, you can sit down for a delicious and leisurely lunch at a peaceful restaurant with good food and attentive servers? Is it just a dream? No! It’s Perquimans County!
