TOIL AND TRIAL:
A STORY OF LONDON LIFE.
BY MRS. NE W TON CROSLAND;

WITH FRONTISPIECE BY JOIIN LEECII.
“ The writer has the great merit, for a reform teacher, of not alienating her hearers by extravagant doctrines. The book is quite wholesome, and well calculated to help an important movement."-Atheneum.
“She is a moralist, who draws truths from sorrow with the hand of a master, and depicts the miseries of mankind only that she may improve their condition."-Bell's Weekly Messenger.
“The characters of the tale are cleverly conceived ; the incidents are ingeniously evolved, and the general structure of the plot is exceedingly symmetrical."-Weekly Chronicle.
“We cordially commend the work to general perusal, but more particularly to the attention of employers and heads of families."- Oxford Herald.
" A well-told and most affecting story, apparently of real life.”—Morning Herald.
“This is a very delightful little book for the purpose for which it is intended. As an instructive and amusing tale for children, it is one which is calculated to be extremely popular. * It is written in an easy and familiar style, and, from the pleasing inanner in which the incidents are narrated, is likely to awaken and excite the curiosity of youthful readers.”- Sunday Times.
“Mrs. Crosland's story is nicely written, not down to the capacities of children, but in better style than such incidents are usually narrated : the moral is never lost sight of, and is made attractive from first to last. * * *
The incidents it will be seen are simple enough; and it is by the interweaving of the accessory circumstances that the writer of the tale has shown her skill, and kept up the interest without sacrificing probability. The work is illustrated with a few pretty engravinge.”—Illustrated London News.
“Mrs. Crosland's nicety of delincation and delicacy of touch remind us of Miss Edgeworth."-Standard of Freedom.
A sweet tale, and such as will make a rare gift for a child."-Sun. “ l'ew works have pleased us more in the perusal than this simple and unpretending little narrative. Although simple, it is ingenious in construction, and the interest is ably and unremittingly sustained. The effect upon the mind of the first conscious act of deception on the part of a child, and the extrinsic consequences of such conduct in relation to others, innocently suspected of wrong and deceit, are forcibly and faithully delineated.”-- Nottingham Mercury.
