The publishers are aware that they need do no more than to announce this work, for *
the thousands who have read “Uncle Tom" will welcome any new production from the

piest vein; and that they would have created a great sensation, and would have met
with a very large sale, if published anonymously.

same beaten paths, will be surprised at the freshness and absorbing interest with
which this gifted author has invested the subject From the voyage to the return, the
reader follows her guidance with unquestioning delight.
The principal character in the novel is an ambitious youth from the country, who coming poor and inexperienced to the city, attempts to earn a livelihood and to win a name in literary pursuits. In following his varied fortunes, the author will give sketches of life and society, drawn with a free hand, with touches of humor and satire, and with vigorous strokes portraying the tragedy of human passion.
No young author in America has had a greater number of readers than “Paul Creyton.” The works by which he is most widely known are read with delight by persons of all classes and ages ; for his fidelity to nature, and the charm of every-day life which surrounds his pictures, appeal to every heart. His style is at once easy and forcible 3 an atmosphere of the purest moral sentiment pervades his writings, and his sympathies are ever with the humble, the generous, and the true.
