CHRONICLES OF CARLINGFORD: SALEM CHAPEL. Fiction,

Second Edition. Complete in 1 vol., price 5s.

"This story, So fresh, so powerfully written, and so tragic, «ands out from among its fellows like a
piece of newly-coined cold in * handful of dim commonplace shil lings. Talcs of pastoral experience and
scenes from clerical life we have had in plenty, but the sacred things of the conventicle, the relative posi-
tion of pastor and flock in a Nonconforming ' connection,' were but guessed at by the world outside, and »
terrible la the revelation.'' - Wulmin&Ur Smew.
