Yet "Marse Chan" quickly shifts to Sam's perspective. Formerly enslaved on the Channing plantation, Sam regales his unnamed listener with descriptions of young Master Tom Channing's fairness, nobility, and courage. For example, when his father is blinded while rescuing his servant "Ham" from a burning barn, Tom dutifully returns from college in order to run the family plantation. Likewise, ever the chivalrous gentleman, Master Channing remains loyal to his childhood sweetheart, Anne Chamberlain, even after she rebuffs his advances following Tom's disagreement with her quick-tempered father, Colonel Chamberlain.

She endeavors to run the plantation alone, backed only by her resolve and endurance. Interestingly, the story's narrator, the faithful Unc' Billy, actually emerges as the true hero. Though honored to present Miss Anne at her wedding to a northerner, Billy, ever humble and self-deprecating, accepts little credit for his unwavering service. Picking up during Reconstruction, "Ole 'Stracted" centers on a strange old man, a former slave suffering from amnesia whose appearance in the neighborhood is shrouded in mystery. When his young family is sold away under slavery, Ole 'Stracted loses his memory and wanders aimlessly for years.
The story closes with a poignant reunion, yet Ole 'Stracted does not live long to enjoy it.

Although "No Haid Pawn," with its uncanny legends of ghostly terrors, seems somewhat out of place in Page's collection, its gothic undertones locate this story in a well-established southern tradition. The final story in Page's collection, "Polly," preserves a child's special Christmas memory, a snapshot taken before the devastating Civil War that disrupted this carefully balanced existence.
