Grant, M. (n.d.). The North Woods Mystery. Retrieved from

Excerpt: LATE summer heat gripped New York?s Chinatown. It was evening; but nightfall had brought no coolness. The brick walls that fringed the narrow streets had clamped the stifling atmosphere within their confines. Chinatown was quiet. Few tourists had come to this district. This was a season when Coney Island busses outnumbered those bound to Chinatown. With business lacking, the proprietors of Chinese shops were seated in their doorways, puffing pipes and blandly eyeing passing strollers. A well?dressed man was walking briskly along Mott Street. He looked like an American; but when he turned the corner of Pell Street, the lights of Chinatown?s center revealed his face more plainly. The man was a Chinese; and seated shopkeepers nodded solemn greetings as he passed.
