MORE HAWARDEN HORACE.
‘Unlike most sequels, “More Hawarden Horace" easily sustains the promise of Mr. Charles L. Graves's earlier imitations. There is the same facile dexterity in technique, the same ingenious selection of analogies, the same softly-feathered flight of wit that hits the mark but leaves no wound.'—WORLD.
'Reveals the same pretty wit and the same unerring sense of the things which are and the things which are not in good taste, as distinguished the preceding volume.'-Pall Mall GAZETTE.
'Mr Graves's charming pieces.'-SPECTATOR.
