"We like this work exceedingly, and our fair countrywomen will admire it still more than we do. It is written in the true spirit, and evinces extensive observation of society, a clear insight into the evils surrounding and pressing down her sex, and a glorious determination to expose and remove them. Read her work. She will win a willing way to the heart and home of woman, and her mission will be found to be one of beneficence and love. Truly, woman has her work and her reward." American Spectator.

We have rarely perused a tale more interesting and instructive than the one before us, and we commend it most cordially to the attention of all our readers." Protestant Churchman.
