I would have sold it for a dollar." (Book of Jack London, I, 344.) London originally titled this story "Semper Idem, Semper Fidelis". He received $50 for it on August 13, 1900.

    Freda Moloof, a Dawson City figure who billed herself as "the Turkish Whirlwind Danseuse," was used as the pattern for Freda in this story. She also appears in "The Wife of a King" (entry 17), and there is a "Freda" in Burning Daylight, entry 19. Years after the Klondike days, London ran into Freda Moloof doing her muscle dance at an Oakland street fair. He later sent her a copy of GHF in which "The Scorn of Women" appeared. (In its original appearance it was "Woman.") See Richard O'Connor, Jack London, A Biography. Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1964, pp. 97-98 fn. London's play of the same title (1906) was based on this story, for which he received $20 in June 1901.
