Excerpt from Annals of the Poor
The Annals of tlze Poor is not yet an obsolete book. Its dress may be a little antiquated, but a warm life throbs in it still. The scenes and characters it so lovingly, sympathizingly por trays, we feel to be a genuine bit of human life. This comes of writing from the heart, not from the head only, still less from other people's heads. How much loud logic and stormful debating of that period has fallen absolutely silent to us; while this small voice, like a perennial fountain leaping straight from the heart of nature, murmurs on, and its music falls pleasant on the ear!
