The Lost Clue

The Lost Clue by O. F. Walton.

The Lost Clue is an ingeniously constructed story, the hero of which has been brought up as the son of a wealthy but illiterate man. On the death of his presumed father he expects to find a paper explaining a matter of grave importance to himself. The paper, it seems, has been stolen, but, when discovered, is found to contain the secret of the hero's birth. A word, however, which would have given him his father's name, has been obliterated. How the secret was unravelled is told in the author's best style.—Religious Tract Society (1905).
