Another New Story now Ready
IN THE New York Weekly,
(The best Story and Sketch Paper published)
The Defrauded Heiress;
OR, The Stepmother's Plot.
By JAMES REYNOLDS,
Author of "The Stolen Bride,"
"Long Hank," "Hermit of Ottawa," &c., &c. In "The Stolen Bride," and " Long
Hank," and " Hermit of the Ottawa," Mr. Reynolds gave evidence of great vigor
and power, and stamped himself as a romancer of no mean reputation; but in
giving to the world "The Defrauded Heiress," he has placed himself in the front
rank of the great writers of the day. It is a story of life in a great city,
founded on fact, and in it are brought to view all the lights and shades of
society. Most people have but an imperfect idea of the snares and pitfalls set
to entrap the unwary, not only in low life among the hovels of the poor, but
among the wealthy and powerful and apparently respectable.
The story in question chronicles
the misfortunes of a young and beautiful girl, born and nurtured in the lap of
luxury, who is the victim of the foul machinations of her own mother, who, in
order to secure the property which the poor girl holds in her own right, does
not scruple to connive at her irretrievable ruin. The manner in which the story
is worked up proves conclusively that its author holds the key to the human
heart, and that, having unlocked it, he can play upon it as upon an instrument.
It has not a string which does not vibrate to his powerful touch. At one moment
he fires us with indignation, as he relates some act of cold-blooded treachery
and wrong, and at another our heart throbs wildly with the pleasurable
excitement which the narration of heroic and generous acts is sure to call up.
The poor, but noble and virtuous seamstress, the wealthy but conscientious woman
of the world, the hard-fisted mechanic, the reckless roue, the desperate
gambler, and the true gentleman, all pass in review before the reader, portrayed
with a power that never fails to engross the whole attention. From the first
chapter to the last he is spell-bound, and when he reaches the end he lays down
the paper with a sigh of regret that the story has ended so soon.
We think we may safely say that
The Defrauded Heiress
is the most powerfully-written
romance which has been placed before the public for many years.

in some cases, where Agents have to pay extra freight or postage, a higher price
