Its preface Ii a lullaby tho end a
funeral song
Oh the blotched and ragged loges
In the volume of a life
Oh those hot and weary ages
Of the souls eternal strife
Oh the blazing crazing focrI I
Of the reddest reddest blood
Oh the raging aging fever
Of tho plangent ceaseless flood I
Oh the heaven and the hell
The temporal and supreme
The waking and the sleeping
The end of every dream
The banting of all babble
The patting of tho mind I
That sweeps os to the future
And leave tho put behind I
What trenchant pent are deeds
What rabid woes are rife dctodlI I
Whit mysteries and historic
In the volume of a 1IfI I

This book Is exciting much com i I
ment now not only because of Its very
nnntualccss but alto for the fresh
ness and sparkle about It I
She It a most remarkable maiden
this 17yearold Elizabeth who starts
out on a round of visits to her still
more remarkable relatives and takes
you to intimately I and often irresist
Ibly Into her confidence through the
letter written to her mother they
tell the story and make the book
lice mother being an Invalid Eliza
beth goes to these hornet of nobility
accompanied only by her French maid
but she proves well able to fend for
herself No Yankee bachelor girl
or Western emancipated female Is
more competent to take can of herself
or to rite equal to e very emergency
though the emergencies are often
what no Amerrican girl would ever
have to encounter than loot this
moot carefully railed British maid of
high degree
At first yon think the It a moot
guileless maiden and are Inclined toI I
believe that over her matt be that es
pecial and watchful care that Is given
to children and Innocents but glrenII II I
Ibo shows such depth of Insight Into 1
tho ways of the world that yon bee
come convinced there must bo b some
truth In the doctrine of original I
tin One would like to lee the re
plies that her mother would and
ebpald have made to these letters I
The ibock of ionic of them mutt have I
caused n relapse of tome sort to the I
Invalid we fear t
You do not gain a very high Idea
of the British nobllltr and their ways
from these letters or of the French I
either as far as that Is concerned for I
she takes In both countries in her I
rounds and sees much of a life that
makes us glad that we aro good Amer I
ican trades people who arc not at
liberty to defy God and society
There U some very clever satin evi I
dent In there letters especially InI I
speaking of the French as when IboI I
naively says It is a perfect wonder I
that they wen not all exclaiming at
their wet feet and catching cold botI I
Itseems that dancing on the green and
these sort of fetes champctres an na
tional sports and yon dont catch cold
at them It is only washing and
having tho windows open and the
house aired and things like that that
Rive cold In France
Elizabeth often displays a great deal
of commonsense that makes her into
tress of the situation and she has the
courage of her convictions not hesi
tating to speak her mind frankly to
Lord and Lady What Ibo docs not
understand she does not at all mind
inquiring about and then tolling yon
nil she has found ontolieI guileless
reception of a proposal from a French
Marquis to elcpo with him Is refresh
lug In the extreme and perfectly
Think of Jt mamma Me flying
with the Marquis Without a wed
ding cake or Irldesmalds or pages
or tronwean or any of the really nice
boring part of just going away and I
staying with one man without any of t
the other things to make np for It
The book It destined to bo read f or
Its very novelty and to lie variously
viewed already the critic have
launched their for and against fall
upon It The Identity of the author
hat excited tome comment tuo but
not for an Instant do wo agree with
these who believe Elinor Olyn In
bo the unknown author of Elizabeth
and Her German Garden She just I
cannot be tho tame
The book Is attractively gotten up
as all the Bodley Head boob are
Tho most fetching thing about it
though Is the beautiful photogravure
portrait at frontispiece If It be In
tended for Elizabeth the Is Indeed a
dear at looking and her you do not
wonder that the hearts of the men all
adored her
