He was a graduate of Harvard and so far above her in all intellectual things until she decided that it was useless to try to come to him. She told him she was immoral, therefore unfit, so he went away from her. But she was ambitious, she wanted to be somebody, but the Negros told her she wasn't nothin' — just a "yallah, stuck-up, fly-by-night hussy" — and accused her of all kinds of things. She struggled, but how could a poor girl be anything in the face of such circumstances? Fate seemed to be against her; the more she tried to struggle up, the further she was pushed backed into the grime and squalor of Niggertown. Then she was arrested for grand larceny — but was she guilty? Or was it because she refused to deliver her virtue — her body — to the seducer?
