THE CONGREGATIONALIST (Christian World Number) 1 December 1900

The House Behind the Cedars. By C. W. Chesnutt. PP. 294. Houghton, Mifflin & Co. $1.50.

Deals ably with the painful consequences at the South of possessing the least infusion of Negro blood. Sad but finely conceived and written. A powerful, interesting story.
