By observing and imitating her circle of white friends, she learned how to live in a white world. She got engaged and married to an attractive white man. Beautiful and quick- witted, outwardly poised and happy, she overcame the strain of a life of constant lying and an ever-present sense of danger, until she became pregnant and was overwhelmed by the terror that her baby might be dark- skinned.Reba Lee [not her real name] told her story to writer Mary Hastings Bradley. Bradley [1882-1976] was the author of numerous mysteries, travel books, short fiction and novels, including the Old Chicago series of historical novels.

The pages are toned with some scattered minor foxing throughout and somewhat heavier foxing nearer the back. There is an early ink stain to the bottom margins of two leaves. The front endpaper is detached. Good. From the collection of Matthew Lewis, possibly the father of the English novelist "Monk" Lewis, with his armorial bookplate on the front pastedown, signed by him at the top of the front endpaper and with the armorial bookplate of Panshanger (Earl Cowper) mounted on the front endpaper.The Greek Stoic philosopher Epictetus (circa A.D. 55 to 135) was born a slave at Hierapolis, Phrygia and lived in Rome until his banishment. He lived the rest of his life in Nicopolis in Northwestern Greece. Epictetus believed that all events are determined by fate and, while individuals are responsible for their own actions, we should accept whatever happens calmly and dispassionately.James Stockdale, who ran for the office of Vice President under Ross Perot, was earlier in his life a fighter pilot. Stockdale was shot down and captured by the Vietnamese during the Vietnam war. Stockdale credits Epictetus with helping him endure his seven-and-a-half year as a prisoner of war. Quoting Stockdale on Epictetus "The emotions of grief, pity, and even affection are well- known disturbers of the soul. Grief is the most offensive; Epictetus considered the suffering of grief an act of evil. It is a willful act, going against the will of God to have all men share happiness". Tom Wolfe, V.S. Naipaul, Laurence Sterne, and James Joyce (in his "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man") mention and even quote Epictetus. Bookseller Inventory # 31791
