With his collection of stories entitled Marjorie Daw and Other People (), Aldrich wrote with realism and humor. His novels Prudence Palfrey (), The Queen of Sheba (), and The Stillwater Tragedy () were more dramatically : A Word To The Wise. His short stories, especially those in Marjorie Daw and Other People, are noted for their naturalness and craftsmanship.

The daughter is called Marjorie—Marjorie Daw. Sounds odd at first, doesn’t it? But after you say it over to yourself half a dozen times, you like it.
