From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Sullivan, Francis S., an eminent legal writer, was born in the south of Ireland early in the 18th century, and graduated in Trinity College, Dublin, where he was elected a fellow in 1738. He died about 1775. His principal works were, a Treatise on Feudal Law, and Lectures on the Constitution and Laws of England. Of the first, an eminent legal writer, quoted by Allibone, says: "We know of no work on feudal learning and the first principles of the English constitution, equal in merit or interest... Copious in detail, and exhibiting ably, among other topics, the influence of the feudal system upon the modern law of tenures."

"Beautiful, different and touching. Short, sweet and lovely. Made me cry. You sense that this is a true story veiled in the guise of fiction as are all the best stories."
Although ostensibly set in England, this story was penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
