Jerome, a poor man
A poor young man makes a kind of wager that, if he becomes rich, he will give up all his wealth to the poor; both of which he does. The book is a study of lowly, straitened life, and a sentimental indictment of the selfish indulgence of the rich.
Jerome is a good specimen of the wrong-headed, stiff-necked New Englander, sacrificing everything to his willful pride. Among the minor characters are some sketches of the genial old-fashioned gentry, very unlike her average New Englander.
