The biblio I have on the web site lists:

     * "The Joke on Eloise Morey" (Brief Stories 8, No. 4, June 1923)

and the next Op story is:

     * "Arson Plus" (The Black Mask, 1 October 1923) (as Peter Collinson)

and then one under his own name:

     * "Crooked Souls" (a.k.a. "The Gatewood Caper") (The Black Mask (15
       October 1923)

If "Eloise Morey" isn't an Op story, then I need to correct it.
