Beadle's Christmas Story.

Maum Guinea,

And Her Plantation "Children ;"

OR, CHRISTMAS WEEK AMONG THE AMERICAN SLAVES.

By MRS. METTA V. VICTOR,
Author of "Alice Wilde."

LOUISIANA PLANTATION LIFE DURING THE HOLIDAYS IS

seized upon by the author to weave around the barbacues, night-dancing, story-telling and love-making of the Slaves a romance embodying all the tragedy and pathos, the sorrow and enjoyment, the happiness and humor of Slave Life and its two-fold experiences. The negro and white characters introduced are all "representative"—each illustrative of some peculiar phase of a strange history.
