Note Relating to Cather
"Don't read Sir George Tressady, Mrs. Humphry Ward's latest novel. It's not a Christian duty, and it will bore you to death. It is slower and more tedious than Marcella, and there is no point to it when you are done with it.... If you want to read Mrs. Ward, take up David Grieve [1892] again.... The childhood of David and his sister is done with a strong comprehensive touch that recalls George Eliot's matchless treatment of little Tom and Maggie Tulliver."
