Christmas Week among the American

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.
