“The great novel-reading public, which found ' The Hypocrite' to its taste, will not be disappointed in the author's latest effort.

Smith & Son refuse to circulate 'Shams,' objecting to it on moral grounds. This act, on their part, however, will not greatly interfere with the sale of the book, which really castigates vice. We believe it will be as widely read as the works of Ouida and Marie Corelli."- The North Star. Mora : Being One Woman's History: A Nove! by T. W. Speight, Author of “The

“The story is pleasing and wholesome. Its general character is that of a comedy with occasional lapses into the realm of drama. .
