"Everybody who has failed to read 'Tom Cringle's Log' should do so at once. The 'Quarterly Review' went so far as to say that the papers composing it, when it first appeared In 'Blackwood,' were the most brilliant series of the time, and that time one unrivalled for the number of famous maRazinists existing In it. Coleridge says, in his 'Table Talk,' that the ' Log' is most excellent; and these verdicts have been ratified by generations of men and boys, and by the manifestation of Continental approval which is shown by repeated translations. The engravings illustrating the present issue are excellent."— Standard.
