"Massa say de Bobolitionists comin,' and gib us
dese Knives. WHO DEY FOR?"
Chief Cook CAMERON divides the VIRGINIA GOOSE
between MARYLAND and DELAWARE.
Christmas Week among the American
Beadle's Christmas Story.
And Her Plantation
OR, CHRISTMAS WEEK AMONG THE AMERICAN SLAVES.
By MRS. METTA V. VICTOR,
Author of " Alice Wilde."
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.
220 pages complete, beautifully illustrated. Price Twenty Cents. For sale by all
