Excerpt from In Search of Mademoiselle The most thrilling chapter in all this history, strangely neglected or overlooked by the romantic writers, is that of the struggle between the Span ish and French colonists for dominion over our own land of Florida. To me, whose profession it is to see pictures in the words of other men and to pros duce them, this historic page has appealed very strongly as the proper setting for a human drama - d an inviting canvas upon which the imagination may paint a moving picture of the emotions, desires and passions - the loves and hates - oi men and women like ourselves - against the somber and some times lurid background of historic fact.
