THE LIFE OF JOHN PENDLETON KENNEDY.
By HENRY T. TUCKERMAN.
Forms a truly valuable addition to the already affluent stories of American biography. It will place the friend of Irving, Prescott and Everett in his true position by their side.-N. Y, Tribune.
Mr. Tuckerman paints his character in well-considered colors. We commend the volume to professional politicians, and those who may be cultivating the precisely opposite type of character.-N. Y. Independent.
This volume is very pleasant reading.—Boston Daily Advertiser.
Marked by all the author's delicacy of feeling, grace of style and subtle recognition of intellectual gifts.-N. Y. Evening Post.
It is able and artistic. Is there one among Southerners who comes out so much of a man-complete and rounded and so entirely entitled, in his many relations to society, to our respect and admiration? His home, which comes out so delightfully, his geniality, good and cultivated sense, are charming; such homes we have known and enjoyed, but are too rare. We feel to Mr. Kennedy, after having devoured the volume at three sittings, like a friend and near acquaintance of his whole circle. As a book full of patriotic sentiments it must live, and we hope be reproduced for the benefit of thousands that come after us.-Boston Transcript.
There is one pleasant feature of the work both original and seasonable; as a beautiful domestic interior, this memoir offers a rare and winsome example.Home Journal.
Just such a biography as every public man would like, but such as very few deserve. Golden Age.
