Two Men of Taunton

Updated: Feb 2, 2019

The story of two friends and rivals, Robert Treat Paine, son of Thomas Paine, and Daniel Leonard, son of Thomas Leonard, "Two Men of Taunton", gives a great deal of information about the Leonard family, particularly that of James Leonard the Iron Master. It was written in 1912 by Ralph Doval. The illustrations below are just a few the book includes. The "Leonard Mansion", the Leonard's "House of Seven Gables", and a portrait of Daniel Leonard are shown below.
