" Our author's descriptive powers are of the very first order, and in his sketches of character there is no writer that better understands the art of bringing out the salient features in high relief, and of impressing an individuality upon the portraiture that fixes the image perfectly in our mind, until it haunts us like the figure of one we have intimately known. Mr. Simms has opened a new and virgin mine in the treasures of Romance. An unploughed field, which only needs cultivation to produce
the richest fruits."´┐ŻEvening Gazette and Galaxy.
