Gibbons. The Century Company, New York This is a good book. It shows us hor we can help France and how France cal help us. The general soundness of the author's opinions is evident when we consider what has taken place since his chap ters were written. They are all publishel just as written when the fighting was in progress. Not all will regard one of the author's opinions, however, as sound—that concerning the despatch to Europe of volunteer army led by Theodore Roosevelt no matter what the greater satisfaction in France later was at the arrival of an official army led by General Pershing.

By JOSEPH BUCKLIN BISHOP
The career of no historic personage approaching Roosevelt in

eminence and interest has ever been set forth so fully, so au-
thoritatively, so humanly.

The extraordinary qualities of this book are

pointed out by those best equipped to judge: Professor BRANDER MATTHEWS:

“Mr. Bishop has given us a work which does for one President of the United States what was done for an earlier President

by the publication of Grant's Personal Memoirs.'” Dr. NICHOLAS MURRAY BUTLER, President of Columbia University :

“I can think of no similarly complete and vivid record of the

life and public work of any statesman and man of affairs.” W. H. P. FAUNCE, President of Brown University :

“Mr. Bishop's own style and method are like transparent glass through which we see Mr. Roosevelt as he was.”
