Howe, E. W. A moonlight boy.

VH8343M "Mr. Howe has risen above the narrow, though clever power of writing a good story of strong local color, and attained the power to write a fine story of the human nature of the world; and he has emerged from the doleful, doubtful, and useless tragedy of utterly hopeless representations of life, into a rendering of quite com. monplace material, so sunny, so genial, so mirth-provoking, and so tender, that the reader that is not quite hardened reads with mingled tears and smiles. The boy tells his own story; and clever, pathetic, unique, touching as it is, it never passes beyond what might be expected from an honest straightforward, ill-born and lowly-bred youth, the pathos of whose life is less that he is in every sense awkward, than in the fact that he has intelligence enough to know that he is awkward without power to become anything else." — Critic, July

"In her capacity of portrait painter, and also whilst instructor of drawing in the short-lived girls' school of Yéré Batan, Mrs. Walker made numerous friends amongst the Turkish ladies of Stamboul. She was a welcome guest in many of the harems, and thus had ample opportunity for studying the domestic life of the Turks. We know no better or more accurate description of the quiet everyday life of a Turkish family, which, in its simplicity and the monotonous routine of its home duties, differs so widely from our western notions of the indolent luxury of the daily life of a harem.


Mrs. Walker is equally at home in the streets of Constantinople, and gives a picturesque description of that motly crowd of street merchants and labourers whose varied costumes give so peculiar a character to the general aspect of the streets.” — Athenæum, July

The second cruise gave them much wider experi ence. Going first to La Plata and the Falkland Islands, they took Cape Town on their way to Australia, whence they passed up to Japan, and spent much time there, and on the Chinese coast before returning through the Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal, with long halts in Egypt and Palestine on their way back to England.
