1912. Shipman (Mrs. William Shankland Andrews), is the American author of The Counsel Assigned and The Perfect Tribute. The Marshall begins: On the wall of the large hall of a house in Virginia hang two portraits side by side. Both are of young men, both in uniform; one in the dark blue coat and the white and red of an infantry officer of the French Empire, the other in that scarlet shirt which came to be a flag, almost as much as a dress, to the heroic band of insurgents who struggled for free Italy against the Austrians. The master of the Virginia house, coming into it today, meets always those two pair of eyes-the eyes of his grandfather the Marquis and of a French peasant to whom his grandfather's youth was linked by ties of more than brotherhood.
