Commentary: This is the last of the stories about the Canadian Mountie, Renfrew, authored by Laurie York Erskine. In a letter to Schoonover on March 11, 1931, the managing editor of The American Boy writes: Here’s ‘Brass Knuckles’, the last of the current Renfrew series. It has been a long one, hasn’t it? And you’ve been doing some splendid work for us.”
Four spots for the story, (#’s1835, 1836, 1837, and 1838) were painted together on the same canvas (28″ by 50″). The exact size of each of the four images is unknown. (day books)
