Indexer Notes

In the actual interior "Mistrust" story, the woman is blonde. The woman on the cover uttering the "Mistrust" word balloon is brunette and is probably intended to be the woman from "The Parson's Wife" story. The other woman on the cover is probably the woman from the "Was I Jinxed?" story. Neither woman on the cover seems to be drawn by the artists who illustrated the interior stories.
