The Sunny Side

Overview

When war broke out, I had published three of these books in England, the gleanings of nine years' regular work for Punch. There are, I understand, a few Americans who read Punch, and it was suggested to me that a suitable collection of articles from these three books might have some sort of American sale.

MEN OF LETTERS JOHN PENQUARTO A TALE OP LITERARY LIFE IN LONDON (Modelled on the hundred best Authors.)
