Hawthorne, Jr.

Nathaniel Hawthorne's son Julian (who was often confused with his famous father) was once introduced to one of the older man's admirers. "Oh, Mr. Hawthorne," the woman enthused. "I've just read The Scarlet Letter, and I think it's a real masterpiece." "Oh, that?" Julian nonchalantly replied. "That was written when I was only four years old."
