Nicholson, Meredith: Rosalind at Red Gate. V1. 24 Oct 2011

Meredith Nicholson (9 December 1866 22 December 1947) was a best-selling author from Indiana, United States, a politician, and a diplomat.
Nicholson was born on 9 December 1866 in Crawfordsville, Indiana, to Edward Willis Nicholson and the former Emily Meredith. Largely self-taught, Nicholson began a newspaper career in 1884 at the Indianapolis Sentinel. He moved to the Indianapolis News the following year, where he remained until 1897.
He wrote Short Flights in 1891, and continued to publish extensively, both poetry and prose until 1928. During the first quarter of the 20th century, Nicholson, along with Booth Tarkington, George Ade, and James Whitcomb Riley helped to create a Golden Age of literature in Indiana. Three of his books from that era were national best sellers:
The House of a Thousand Candles (#4 in 1906)
The Port of Missing Men (#3 in 1907)
A Hoosier Chronicle (#5 in 1912)
In 1928, Nicholson entered Democratic party politics, and served for two years as a city councilman in Indianapolis. He rose through the ranks of the Democratic party and was rewarded with appointments as Envoy to Paraguay, Venezuela, and Nicaragua.
Nicholson died on 22 December 1947 in Indianapolis, aged 81, and is buried in the Crown Hill Cemetery.

Excerpt
STODDARD'S telegram was brought to me on the Glenarm pier at four o'clock Tuesday afternoon, the fifth of June. I am thus explicit, for all the matters hereinafter described turn upon the receipt of Stoddard's message, which was, to be sure, harmless enough in itself, but, like many other scraps of paper that blow about the world, the forerunner of confusion and trouble.
