[Review of Frederick Douglass]

One of the most absorbing of the compact little "Beacon Biographies," is the latest one, "Frederick Douglass," which is especially fortunate in having for its writer a man of such intelligent sympathy and discrimination as Charles W. Chesnutt. The character of Douglass himself, his intensely interesting personality, and the greatness of his mission, could hardly fail to make a striking study, even at the hands of a less able biographer.
