PUBLISHERS’ NOTE.

The Publishers have extreme pleasure in placing this novel, by a new and promising native author, before the reading public of Canada.  They will be greatly disappointed if it does not at once take its place among the best products of Canadian writers.  While the work has peculiar interest for Torontonians and dwellers in the districts so graphically described, its admirable character drawings of many “sorts and conditions” of our people—­its extremely clever dialect, representing Irish, Scotch, English, Canadian, French, Southern and Negro speech, and the working out of its story, which is done in such a way as would credit an experienced romancer—­should insure the book a welcome in very many homes.  The literary flavour is all that can be desired; the author evidencing a quite remarkable acquaintance with English Literature, especially with Wordsworth, the Poet of the Lake Country.
