"When we read the article upon M. Paul Bourget, or those on the brothers De Goncourt, or Pierre Loti, or Jules de Glouvet, or Rabusson, or Feuillet, it seems as if M. Lemaitre was at his very best in treating of the authors of the 'roman contemporain' in all its surprising diversity. But when he writes of Parisian 'chroniquers,' Wolff and Blaret, Rochefort and Henry Fouquier, or of poets like Soulary or Jean Richepin, we feel in every fibre of malice there is in us such a sympathy with the critic, such an enjoyment of every sarcastic thrust,every delicate touch of the critical blade, that we are ready to say that here alone is he in the fullest exercise of all his best abilities. But it is only when we re-rend one of his most serious papers that we feel the full power and range of his marvellously varied gifts as a writer and critic." — Nation, Mar. 31.

"Has had the effect of prejudicing the interests of the Prince in Bulgaria by the unsympathetic tone which it represents as uniformly prevailing in the Court.
