No description available, A Birthday Letter br br From The Yellow Dwarf br br MR EDITOR I was vastly diverted as no doubt were you by the numerous and various results that followed the appearance of my letter about books and things in the October number of your Quarterly May we not reckon amongst these for instance the departure of Mr Frank Harris for South Africa and the reorganisation by Mr William W Astor of the entire staff of the Pall Mall Gazette And I love to think it was with a view to soothing the hurt I had inflicted upon a whole Tribe of Pressmen that a compassionate Government nominated a representative Pressman to the post of Laureate br br I was diverted too by the numerous and various guesses that were hazarded at my identity Perhaps it will be kind if I make a statement upon this subject Roundly then one and all the guessers were at fault I am not Mr Max Beerbohm nor Professor Saintsbury nor Mr Rider Haggard still less if possible am I Mrs Humphry Ward and least of all sir yourself I m reluctant to deprive you of the glory but I mauna tell a lee I can t deny I wish to gracious I could that you tampered a little with my proofs expunging choice passages appending footnotes and even here and there inserting a comma br br or a parenthesis in the text that I suppose is the Editor s consolation But beyond that you had no more to do with the composition of my letter than I myself had to do with the funny little explosive paragraph in the Saturday Review which attri buted it to you It was sweet by the bye to hear the Saturday Review pathetically complaining of anonymity Are the slatings in its own columns invariably signed Do tell me apropos of this and if the question be not indiscreet what is the secret of the Saturday Review s perennial state of peevish animosity towards yourself Is it possible that in the course of your editorial duties you have ever had occasion to reject a manuscript offered by a member of its staff br br If as a matter of fact the elevation of Mr Alfred Austin to the Laureateship was determined by words of mine I can not but rejoice All things considered a more appropriate selection could scarcely have been made Equally to Press and Public in this age of the Pressman s ascendency a Press man Laureate should be a gratifying spectacle For me the choice always lay between Mr Alfred Austin and Sir Edwin Arnold on the one hand the Bourgeois Gentilhomme on the other hand the Tartufe of the kind of scribbling that now adays has come to take the place of Literature Talk of Mr Swinburne of Mr Morris of Mr Meredith of Mr Watson always seemed to me beside the mark these gentle men are Poets what have they in common with Press and Public And how precipitantly and perfectly did Mr Austin prove his mettle vindicate his qualifications for the job I allude of course to that singularly pure example of journalese Jamesons Ride Most people to be sure write it and some even pronounce it Raid Jameson s Raid But Mr Austin br br knows br br knows his readers which is more than I do and boldly and obligingly he spells it Ride thus incidentally ranging himself with the advocates of Orthographical Reform I was disappointed to observe that a subsequent performance of the Pressman Laureate s was a celebration of the virtues of Alfred the Great Why this backsliding Why not Alfred the Gr ite br br And now sir can you can any sane Christian man can Mr George du Maurier himself explain the success of Trilby That the book should have had a certain measure of success nay a considerable measure of success were indeed explicable enough It is the production of a gentleman who for years and years has charmed and amused us by his drawings, Fifth edition First published by Roberts Brothers Nine short stories The Bohemian Girl Mercedes A Broken Looking Glass The Reward of Virtue A Re Incarnation Flower o the Quince When I am King A Responsibility Castles Near Spain, First published in THE CARDINAL S SNUFF BOX is the first of Henry Harland s Catholic novels after his conversion in A charming and witty romance set in turn of the century Italy SNUFF BOX tells the story of Peter Marchdale an English novelist who takes a small villa in the Lombard countryside for the purposes of getting some serious writing done Marchdale s good intentions are quickly thwarted however when he discovers that his beautiful young landlady is none other than the Duchessa di Santangiolo an Anglo Italian widow with whom he has been secretly in love for years Unfortunately for the self deprecating Peter Marchdale the Duchessa is also a fabulously wealthy noblewoman far above him in social station and a devout Catholic to boot two circumstances which would appear to raise certain obstacles to Peter s romantic aspirations until the matter is taken in hand by the Duchessa s wily old uncle a Roman cardinal with a penchant for pinching snuff and for matchmaking
