It truly was one of the worst days imaginable for poor, young Mr
Milton Huntington. The day had started rather badly and was rapidly
degrading; however, the worst was unfortunately yet to come.
Indeed, one would assume that leaving the Bradwardine’s magnificent
estate with an accepted marriage proposal from their youngest daughter,
who was both pretty and agreeable, would have made any noble gentleman
the happiest man in the British Empire.
Regrettably, I am sorry to say that this was not the case for poor

The short story “Captured by Him” was influenced by
the general romantic concept of a noble-born person falling for
a villain or a rogue. The theme is of course not that uncommon in
the literature, but I wanted to write my own version, and before
I knew it Milton and Badger turned up on my doorstep and demanded
(very politely) that I wrote about them. I accepted, of course.
I did some background research for this story, including the legend
about Robin Hood and highwaymen and robbery during the 19th century
in England. (I have taken the liberty to extend the period of highwaymen
slightly, since apparently the last highwaymen operated around 1830.)
I also would like to thank The Museum of the City of New York for
the interesting film about the development of New York, including
during the 19th century.
