Golden Links in a Life Chain. By Eva Travers Evered

Poole. (Nisbet and Co.)—A little love-making of the most decorous kind, a little "blue-ribbon" advocacy, and various pictures, sufficiently well drawn, of domestic life, make up this volume. But if the pen has done its work fairly well, we cannot say as much for the pencil. The frontispiece, "Cicely," certainly does not carry out the description of that young lady with which the volume opens.
