"INDIA: THE PEARL OF PEARL RIVER,' taking it all in
all, is the best work Mrs. Southworth has yet written. It is one
great merit in her fictions, that they faithfully delineate life and
manners, without entering on vexed social, religious, or political
issues. In India,' the reader will find & vivid delineation of the
South-West. But this is not all: the characters are boldly drawn,
the incidents natural, and the action of the story rapid and absorb-
ing. The two heroines are finely contrasted. The hero is a noblo
creation; strong of will, earnest in purpose, firm for the right, and
persevering to the end in whatever he believes to be justice and
truth. We cannot recall, in any late work, a character so ideally
lofty, yet so faithful to reality. The heroic spirit in which he goes
West, abandoning the luxuries he has been accustomed to, and
settling down in his rude log hut, determined to conquer fortune
with his own good right hand, is, indeed, the true type of a self-
relying American. No fiction of Mrs. Southworth's bears such
proofs of careful finish. It ought, on these several accounts, to
have a popularity unrivalled by any of her former works, spite of
the immense circulation they have attained."

Copies of either edition of the above work will be sent to
