Newcomb & Gauss, Salem, MA. 1905, 331p. + 4p. illus., previous owner's signature, first edition, slightly cocked, spine faded. A white minister's story, set in the south, showing "the real purpose of educated negroes, just as I have seen it carried out, in their efforts to adjust themselves to their new surroundings. My negro characters are taken from lowly cabin homes, educated in good schools, and become influential agencies among their people" (preface), drawn largely from southern sources.
