Saturday Review.

A healthier novel we have not seen for many a season. To have depicted such a character as Mattie Gray, and to have depicted it successfully, is no slight achievement either ethical or aesthetical.

Athenoeum. " Mattie ; a Stray," is a novel that ought to take a higher rank than that of an ephemeral work of fiction. Mattie is a charming heroine. She and her life are painted after the life. The story is full of interest at every page.

Spectator. There is great ability in this book.

Sun. A very attractive, interesting, and naturally-told tale. It well sustains the author's high reputation.

Reader. An admirable Novel. It is a picture of life so true and vivid as to rivet the attention from first to last.

John Bull. The story of "Hattie : a Stray," is fully worthy of the author's high reputation. The interest is well sustained throughout, and the descriptive passages are given with unusual power. It bids fair to be one of the most popular novels of the season. HARPER & BROTHERS Have Just Published:
