Sylvia's Marriage: A Novel - Some Press Notices

"The importance of the theme cannot be doubted, and no one hitherto ignorant of the ravages of the evil and therefore, by implication, in need of being convinced can refuse general agreement with Mr. Sinclair upon the question as he argues it. The character that matters most is very much alive and most entertaining."--_The Times.

"There is not a man nor a grown woman who would not be better for reading Sylvia's Marriage."--_The Globe

"Those who found Sylvia charming on her first appearance will find her as beautiful and fascinating as ever."--_The Pall Mall.

Saveliitch greeted me with his usual remonstrances-- "What pleasure can you find, sir, in fighting with these drunken robbers? Is it the business of a _'boyar_?' The stars are not always propitious, and you will only get killed for naught. Now if you were making war with Turks or Swedes! But I'm ashamed even to talk of these fellows with whom you are fighting." I interrupted his speech. "How much money have I in all?" "Quite enough," replied he, with a complacent and satisfied air.
