A story of New Orleans in the early 19th century. George Washington Cable was born in New Orleans in 1844 and spent the better part of his adult life chronicling Creole culture. He began his literary career when a two-year bout with malaria afforded him the time to write columns for the New Orleans Picayune and indulge his hobby of reading New Orleans city records. When Scribner's Monthly published his story Sieur George in 1873, Cable received popular and critical acclaim. Over the next three years, Scribner's featured numerous Cable stories, including Belles Demoiselles Plantation, Madam Délicieuse, and Jean-ah Pouquelin. These and other stories were collected and published in 1879 as Old Creole Days.
