[Review of Frederick Douglass]

FREDERICK Douglass. by Charles W. Chesnutt. The Beacon Biographies. Edited by M. A. DeWolfe Howe. 141 pp. 18mo, 57 cents; by mail, 62 cents.

This impossibility of "keeping it up," discerned by some of those who examined the first group of these "Beacon Biographies," has not yet appeared as their successors come from the press. They are still as excellent in mechanical execution, still edited as minutely as were the earlier volumes. This life of Douglass is written in a spirit of admiration and apparently with racial sympathy.
