GRAHAME wrote "'History of the Rise and Progress of the United States of North America till the British Revolution of 1688.' The first two volumes appeared in 1827, and a new edition (4 vols.) in 1836, bringing the work down to the year 1776; but its thoroughly American spirit interfered with its success in England, and for several years it was little known in the United States. In 1841 a genial notice of the "History," by the historian Prescott, appeared in the "North American Review," in which it was styled 'the most thorough work, and incomparably the best on the subject, previous to Mr. Bancroft's.'"
