From the cover: "From the Overland Monthly of September, 1870 : Together with a brief estimate and appreciation of Francis Bret Harte by Arthur H. Chamberlain, and presented by him with the compliments of Overland Monthly, to the members of the League of Western Writers, in convention at San Francisco, California, August 16-20, 1932, as a souvenir". Bret Harte (1836-1902) was an American author and poet, especially known for writing about Gold Rush era California. Though intended to be satirical, the poem reprinted in this volume was interpreted as mocking the Chinese and used to foster anti-Chinese sentiment. Bookseller Inventory # 015469
