"The Devil Baby at Hull House" by Jane Addams (1860-1935).  
Jane Addams co-founded Hull House in Chicago as part of the Settlement House Movement. At Hull House, recent immigrants were afforded educational and cultural opportunities to smooth their assimilation into American society. In this fascinating and brilliantly written essay, first published in the Atlantic Monthly in 1916, Addams relates how a rumor of a “Devil Baby” residing at Hull House swept through the local neighborhood. He had cloven hoofs, pointed ears and a diminutive tail, and spoke as soon as he was born and in a language that was shockingly profane. Addams writes as a sensitive observer. It is her mission to help people, and also to understand them.
