The Confidence Man

Herman Melville wrote a novel called The Confidence Man and in it he talks about a stranger who boards a steamer going down the Mississippi. It seems to me that this novel is similar to Knut Hamsun's Mysteries, in which a stranger in a yellow suit befuddles the people of a small Norwegian town and eventually kills himself after being frustrated in love. There is nothing much, however, in either book about rubber stamps.
