AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'For a destitute young woman to receive a proposal of marriage, by proxy, on a park bench-well, it simply is not done. But it was done to Arline Grieg! Further, the proposal was that she marry a dying man! The proposal was made only because he was about to pass into eternity.

'Arline Grieg was young and clever and beautiiful. She had been brought up by Bostock Grieg to be married to a wealthy man, so cementing Grieg's financial ties. Then the secret came out at the last minute–Arline was a nameless child. The wealthy man refused to marry her. Enraged by this miscarriage of his plans, Grieg drove her out.

'And, in the park. she received this strange proposal:–"Will you go to the hospital and marry a dying man?" That is the dramatic setting into which E. V. Timms plunges the readers of "The Moonbi Outlaws."'
