The first story Franké illustrated for The American Girl was surprisingly entitled “The Flesh-Pots of Egypt.” It appeared in the January and February issues of 1921.
The scans we have available could be much cleaner; it appears these were converted from microfilm back to a full-sized pdf but without that this artwork might not have been preserved at all.
The magazine had not standardized their layouts yet. In place of a masthead for the story title, we get these sketches incorporated into the first paragraph. The second image looks like an alteration of the first.
Each of the two installments had a single illustration. This one from the January issue,
…and this one the following month.
