In accordance with Cabell's principal of literary economy and his skill at recycling his literary output, most of his short works were later adapted and re-used in later publications. The "Book Inclusion" column lists the later work in which the item re-appeared. The "Notes" column will take you to a page where we list additional information about this periodical entry.

It is our intention to eventually reproduce all of these stories and articles in their original form, as we are able to acquire copies suitable for reproduction. The longer items will be presented as PDF files. After accessing these, you will need to use your browser's "back" button to return to The Silver Stallion.


The Taboo in Literature and The Appeal to Posterity were copied from Fulton History scans.

Note for Mr. Cabell Replies:

1. Mrs. Brewer does not note this re-use, but much of this letter was paraphrased and incorporated into "Exit", originally published in The Reviewer, June 1, 1921, when that work was expanded to become the epilogue to The Lineage of Lichfield.
