Mr. How has done a truly remarkable piece of work . . . any hand, however practiced, might well be proud of the marvelously good descriptions, the dramatic, highly unusual story, the able characterizations.  If “The Penitentes” does not make its author notable it will not be for lack of every “promising” condition.—­The Interior.

A STORY OF THE MORGAN RAID, DURING THE WAR OF THE REBELLION.

THE LEGIONARIES

By HENRY SCOTT CLARK.

* * * * *

“The Legionaries” is pervaded with what seems to be the true spirit of artistic impartiality.  The hero, to be sure, is a secessionist, but the author, at least in this book, is simply a narrator.  He stands aside, regarding with equal eye all the issues involved and the scales dip not in his hands.  To sum up, the first romance of the new day on the Ohio is an eminently readable one—­a good yarn well spun.—­Cincinnati Commercial Tribune.

The appearance of a new novel in the west marks an epoch in fiction relating to the war between the sections for the preservation of the Union.  “The Legionaries,” by an anonymous writer, said to be a prominent lawyer of the Hoosier state, concerns the raid made by the intrepid Morgan through the southeastern corner of Indiana, through lower Ohio and to the borders of West Virginia, where his depleted command ran into a trap set by the federal authorities.  It is a remarkable book, and we can scarcely credit the assurance that it is the work of a new writer.—­Rochester Herald.

The scene is laid in Kentucky and Indiana, and the backbone of the story is Morgan’s great raid—­one of the most romantic and reckless pieces of adventure ever attempted in the history of the world.  Mr. Clark’s description of the “Ride of the Three Thousand” is a piece of literature that deserves to live; and is as fine in its way as the chariot race from “Ben Hur.”—­Memphis Commercial Appeal.
