SIR PERCY HITS BACK. By Baroness Orczy. (Hodder and Stoughton.

7s. 6d. net.)—Admirers of the League of the Scarlet Pimpernel will enjoy this episode concerned with the horrors of the Terror in provincial France. Baroness Orczy does not tell us whether the extracts from the Moniteur con- cerning the trial of the heroine are authentic, but such an episode may well have happened during the nightmare trials of this period.
