Mister Ron's Basement #779
Our Monday book serialization is George Ade's 1903 collection, 'In Babel -- Stories of Chicago.'
The stories in this book range from the hysterically funny to the pathetically sad. Altogether, they paint a fascinating portrait of turn-of-the-last-century Chicago.
Today's chapter is a charming tale of a country girl working as a servant for a wealthy Chicago family, called 'Effie Whittlesy.'
Time: approx thirteen and a half minutes
