The second and third are about African-Americans. The first is an ambiguously supernatural tale about a photo of a hotel that burned, killing the heroine's late husband; the photo may or may not show him carrying on with another woman. The story bears some affinity to M. R. James's "The Mezzotint" (1904), but whether this is a case of a magical object or a deranged observer, the story would seem to fall into the general category of the fantastic. Bleiler (1948), p. 261. Smith, American Fiction, 1900-1925 S-1092. A fine copy without dust jacket as issued. (#138074)
