Flaming youth is not original to the jazz age, nor was moral turpitude first written into the record at Ellis Island. All who have strained in the effort to live up to those supposed models of all decorum, the Colonial forefathers, will relish Mr. Lawrence's fruitful excursions into the lighterand wickeder-side of Puritan life here revealed.

Seventeenth Century New England had coquettes and fops and an incorrigible younger generation, whose behavior makes the contemporary sheik and flapper seem mild in comparison. Here is a succession of amusing, quaint and some far graver episodes, out of which emerges a spontaneous, and surprising, portrait of the age. Illustrated $3.00

An Atlantic Success
in Fiction




By Sylvia Thompson
Author of "The Hounds of Spring"

A Washington girl marries into an English family, thus provoking many international observations. Worth your while. - Life

It has much in common with The Age of Reason. Other inevitable comparisons are with Jalna and Wintersmoon, and it keeps such good company with distinction and charm.-The Forum

In addition to being a charmingly written story, peopled with a number of interesting characters, this novel gives a clear picture of conditions in England, and the mistakes apt to accrue to an international marriage. The New York World
