The Foreword notes: "The characters pictured in Pomp's People have been known to me long and well. Mam' Ritta, Uncle Baalim, Sibbie Sue Saltmarsh, Sister Dinah Chloe Washington, Brudder Simon Peter, Uncle Joshua--all, at various times, were servants in my household. This book commemorates, in part, their quaint dialect, their odd superstitions, their happy-go-lucky ignorance, their childlike faith, and the rock bottom of sterling qualities underneath all these." A somewhat scurrilous collection of short stories and sketches immortalizing "the delightfully naive Southern Negro," thus a racist tract. 122 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
