LETTERS TO MY SON

This is a unique book of intense human interest
written by a well-known English author whose
name is, by her own desire, withheld. These
Letters, or confessions, tell the story of a woman's
early wedded life with remarkable poignancy, and
with a humor, tenderness, picturesqueness, and
lack of self-consciousness that cannot fail to win
thousands of readers, especially women. The vol-
ume is unlike all other books of fiction. It cannot
be described; it must be read. It is, in short, a
book of a woman's heart written with a mingling
of frankness and reserve, of strong feeling and lit-
erary skill, that will make a permanent impression.

His monumental history of the Greatness and Decline of Rome, completed when the author was thirty-seven years old, has attracted world-wide attention through its radical divergence from accepted theories in the social and economic interpretation of the period chronicled.

"The attractiveness of Mr. Howells's writings is in the ease and grace of diction, the picturesqueness as well as truthfulness of description, the quiet glow of por: traiture, the flashes of wit and the touches of genial humor, — all united to a painstaking accuracy that does not allow fancy or imagination to neglect detail or such elaborate finish as the subjects respectively demand.” — Boston Transcript.

F. S. Mead (“ Gold Production and Investment”) is an economist with a practical turn of mind who contributed to the Atlantic in February, 1908, an article on “ The Panic and the Banks."

Harry James Smith (“ Poor Old Todie ") is a novelist and man of letters who does much of his work in a Connecticut village. His new novel, “ Enchanted Ground,” will appear shortly.

Gideon Welles (“ A Diary of the Reconstruction Period”) retained the naval portfolio throughout the administration of President *Johnson. His revelations concerning the struggle between the President and Congress is doing much to revise American opinion concerning the most critical period in the history of this country.

Eleanor P. Hammond (“Shakespeare's Fools”) is an American scholar of distinction in the special field of the poetry of Chaucer and of his imitators in the fifteenth century. Miss Hammond is connected with the University of Chicago.

Anna Fuller (“Ships in the Air”), the author of several novels, is perhaps most happily remembered by her volume of New England sketches long since gathered together under the title of “Pratt Portraits.” The present contribution is one of the series of stories written by way of sequel to the former volume.

Charles M. Harvey (“ The Story of the Salt Lake Trail”) is an editorial writer on the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, who has made an extensive study of the history of the west and southwest. The present paper is the third in a series on Famous American Trails which the Atlantic is publishing this year.

. Francis Thompson (“ To Daisies ") was an English poet of fulfillment and unusual promise, who died a young man, after publishing one or two slender volumes of verse. Perhaps his best-known poem is the terrible “ Hound of Heaven,” which deserves a permanent place in imaginative literature.

John Jay Chapman (“ Learning ”) is a man of letters who some ten years since was a frequent contributor to the Atlantic. Many of our readers will recall his papers on Emerson as well as on many political and social topics.

Robert M. Gay (“ Tympano ") is a teacher of English in Goucher College, Baltimore. Our readers will welcome the agreeable humor of this new contributor.
