Excerpt from Corrected Impressions: Essays on Victorian Writers

These Critical Notes differ a little in scheme and aim from anything that their writer has hitherto attempted. The shape which they take was partly suggested, as is observed in one of them, by some remarks of Mr. A. J. Balfour's at the Literary Fund Dinner of 1893, in London.
