Ev'ry Month, October 1896, pp. 6-7

As editor of Ev'ry Month, Dreiser was able to write a column entitled "Reflections," allowing him to expound on current events. The article for the October 1896 issue contrasts the onerous existence of New York's "have-nots" with the city's opulence as experienced by the "haves." It is signed "THE PROPHET."
