Excerpt:
"Grandfather," said little Alice, laying her head back upon his arm, "I am very tired now. You must tell me a story to make me go to sleep." "That is not what story-tellers like," answered Grandfather, smiling. "They are better satisfied when they can keep their auditors awake." (Grandfather's Chair)

His ancestors include John Hathorne, the only judge involved in the Salem witch trials who never repented of his actions.
