The editor, Alexander Wheelock Thayer (1817 - 1897) is best known for his biography of Beethoven.

The stories include Signor Masoni, An Evening in the Hartz, Susan Bedloe, Our Music Teacher, Ned Morse's Daughter, Mrs. Smith and Elizabeth, A New Acquaintance, Wyzaker, Monsieur Paul, and the Philister's Reminiscence.
