"I Saw It All in a Dream!"

"The Jewelled Dagger."
By E(dward) A. Morphy (1867-?).
First appearance: The Royal Magazine (1914).
Short short story (6 pages, 3 illos).
Online at Hathi Trust (HERE).

Peter Wayland has met the girl of his dreams—"for him at all events, this was the most beautiful creature the world ever saw." If only she hadn't stabbed that other guy . . .
- FictionMags characterizes our author as follows: "Writer, editor of the San Francisco Argonaut. Born in Killarney, Ireland."

The bottom line: "Is this a dagger which I see before me?"
