Vassia. By Mary C. Ropes. (Sunday School Union.)—The "Russian boy"
whose "eventful journey" is here described, appeals against local oppression to the absent proprietor of the estate. To do this, he has a long way to traverse, and many perils to encounter. Miss Ropes seems to know her subject, and makes one realise the conditions of Russian peasant-life, while at the same time she enforces an excellent moral.
