7. W[illiam] D[ean] Howells, “Mr. Charles W. Chesnutt’s Stories,” Atlantic Monthly (May 1900): 699-701.

Review by a well-known American novelist of short stories about African Americans living in the South penned by a Mullatto author. Howells likes what he has read. “He [Chesnutt] has sounded a fresh note, boldly, not blatantly, and he has won the ear of the more intelligent public.”
