Probably a copy of Self-Raised, or From the Depths by Mrs. E.D.E.N. Southworth from 1876.

Southworth was the most popular US novelist of her time. Sic transit gloria mundi.
"If a person saying he was something was all there was to it, this country'd be full of rich men and good-looking women. Too bad it isn't that easy.... In short, when someone else says you're a writer, that's when you're a writer... not before."
Purveyor of fine science fiction since 1982.
