The Home of Josh Billings

The Home of Josh Billings, by Edith Parker Thomson. Short article describing the author Henry Wheeler Shaw (1818-1885), who had the pen name of "Josh Billings." Shaw was a well-known humorist and was said to be better known in his time than his contemporary, Mark Twain. "Josh Billiings" is still quoted, even today. Shaw was originally from Lanesborough, a focus of this article.
