[1098 JUST PUBLISHED, THE Second Edition of GWLADYS JL WILLIAMS,an ENGLISH DRAMA bearing upon Wales. London T. T. LEMARE, 1, Ivy Lane, Paternoster Row. It deals with Characters in the County of Car- marthen, and with scenes recently enacted there. OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. The reader need not be told that throughout this little Drama there is no false feeling—no base hero dragging his slow length through scores of pages-provoking' what next ?' and 'what next?' till the patient reader loses himself by a fortunate hiatus, or a 'skip' of some forty or fifty pages. No, this is neither novel high life, or low life, improbable or com- mon place, but it is a combination of those characters and qualities, and one that needs but be seen to be enjoyed by 'the forward child-understanding.'
