Reviews of " Lays of Ind."
1 ' The ' Lays ' are not only Anglo-Indian in origin, but out-and-out Anglo-Indian in subject and colour. To one who knows something of life at an Indian * station ' they will be especially amusing. Their exuberant fun at the same time may well attract 1 he attention of the ill-defined individual known as ' the general reader.' "aScotsman.

" aSir W. W. Hunter, in The Academy.
" As for that terrible, scathing piece, ' The Story ox Uriah,' we know of nothing with which to compare it, and one cannot help the wretched feeling that it is true. . . . * In Spring Time ' is the most pathetic lament of an exile we know in modern poetry. "aGraphic.
