Mrs. Rundlell Charles, the author of "The Schenberg-Cotta Family," has presents nine sketches; leading events in thirteen centuries of Christian life in England. The first is a dialogue, with appropriate surroundings, between a Druid; a Jew, scattered with his people by the destruction of his sacred city ; and a Christian, a Greek slave from Asia Minor, who works in a British mine. The ninth is a story of the Lollard times. Here the speaker is a Franciscan friar, who has been touched by the teaching of Wyclif. The others are "The Two Martyrs of Verulani," "Annals of an Anglo-Saxon Family" (in three parts), "Alfred" (in two parts), and "A Tale of the Con-quest."
