[Review of Frederick Douglass]

In this issue we desire to call special attention to our readers of biographies. The late Hon. Frederick Douglass by Chas W. Chestnut[sic], is a work which reflects great credit, not only upon Douglass, but coming from the pen of one whose knowledge and writing of the great man is so accurate, that the worst skeptic could find no fault. A man whose words and acts stand as a living monument of the Negro's achievements. For sale by Small, Maynard & Co., Boston. Price 75 cents.

No less interesting is his other book, "The Wife of His Youth," which brings forth the true character of the imaginative minds and its power to illustrate in glowing words the course that is taken by noble minds. For sale by Houghton, Mifflin & Co., Boston and New York. Price $1.50
