The entwining network or railroads and inproved highways has practically obliterated all recollection of the handicaps of travel in Florida a few decades ago. It is hard to realize that the journey made in a few hours today required days - even weeks - in the years which followed the War Between the STates. So accustomed are we to thinking of our centres of population as bustling, wide-awake cities that we seldom picture them as isolated and crude communities or wretched little fishing-towns. Yet such conditions prevailed; and the second Episcopal Bishop of FLorida, the Right REverend John Freeman Young, has given us a vivid protrayal of his experiences at a time when the state was largely a frontier.
