- "Everyone in reading Mr. Hawkins' books feels that he has a peculiarly sure touch with his women. He writes of them with understanding, or perhaps it is only with that respectful and sympathetic misunderstanding which is quite as effective." Anthony Hope is the pseudonym of Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins; the story appears in his Comedies of Courtship.
