Book News Monthly calls it:

"An amazingly tender and beautiful story, in which smiles and tears get a good deal mixed."


says the Chicago News:

"has the rare faculty of making unusual events seem as plausible as ordinary ones, and of finding in ordinary people something absolutely new and interesting."

Frances Hodgson Burnett's
T. Tembarom

"A modern fairy story without fairies; a romance without
knights and dragons, but with all the delightful qualities
of fairy stories and romances.

"Little Ann, Lady Joan, the Duke, and all the other characters stand out with intense personalities.

"The fascinated reader wishes it longer. No one stops to consider whether it is probable or not; no one cares." -Christian Endeavor World.

"I have read the entire story with keen interest.
Merwin's portrayal of character is convincing
and realistic, and his familiarity with the China
Coast and Japanese atmosphere is unquestion-


"In its essence the book is romantic, in much
the same whimsical vein that Locke's books
are romantic. .

"I derived a keen delight from Mr. Merwin's
buoyant, diverting, delicately ironic pages. The
book . is eminently wholesome, clean,
and sane; and I wish we might have more of
the same order."

The New Book by Samuel Merwin

The Works of Dr. S. Weir Mitchell

"He had the freshness of feeling which is the quality of a man of genius.”—The Outlook.

Dr. Mitchell's books are
of that enduring quality
which makes literature-
with a quiet, stately dig
nity reminiscent of Thack-
with a
human appeal altogether
Dr. Mitchell's own.


Dr. Mitchell's last novel, and, in the estimate of many, his greatest.

"A work to be classed with the greatest fiction of the English language, a work that will last for all time as a brilliant picture of American life, manners, and sentiments, at a period of the Civil War that was one of the most important in the development of our country."-Bookseller, Newsdealer and Stationer.

Brooklyn Eagle

"A great many of us will read 'Home' with a deal of
delight. It grips the attention in no uncertain way,
and with its haunting note of greatness, never quite re-

typical of old New England homes."
