Page 450 - Mrs. Holmes* stories are all of a domestic character, and their interest, therefore, is not so intense as if they were more highly seasoned with sensationalism, but it is of a healthy and abiding character.

Page 450 - Almost any new book which her publisher might choose to announce from her pen would get an immediate and general reading. The interest in her tales begins at once, and is maintained to the close. Her sentiments are so sound, her sympathies so warm and ready, and her knowledge of manners, character, and the varied incidents of ordinary life is so thorough, that she would find it difficult to write any other than an excellent tale if she were to try it
Page 450 - Mrs. Holmes' stories are universally read. Her admirers are numberless. She is in many respects without a rival in the world of fiction.

Page 71 - Oh, hast thou forgotten how soon we must sever? Oh ! hast thou forgotten this day we must part? It may be for years, and it may be forever ! Oh, why art thou silent, thou voice of my heart?
Page 133 - Love has bliss, but Love has ruing; Other smiles may make you fickle. Tears for other charms may trickle. Love he comes, and Love he tarries, Just as fate or fancy carries ; Longest stays, when sorest chidden; Laughs and flies, when pressed and bidden. Bind the sea to slumber stilly, .Bind its odor to the lily, Bind the aspen ne'er to quiver, Then bind Love to last for ever...
