Messrs. Roberts Brot tiers Publications. NELLVS SILVER MINE. BY H. H. With Illustrations. i6mo, cloth. Price $1.50. " The sketches of life, especially of its odd and out-of-the-way aspects, by H. H. ilways possess so vivid a reality that they appear more like the actual scenes than any copy by pencil or photograph. They form a series of living pictures, radiant with sunlight and fresh as morning dew. In this new story the fruits of her fine genius are of Colorado growth, and though without the antique flavor of her recol lections of Rome and Venice, aie as delicious to the taste as they are tempting to the eye, and afford a natural feast of exquisite quality." N. Y. Tribune. "This charming little book, written for children s entertainment and instruc tion, is equally delightful to the fathers and mothers. It is life in New England, antj the racy history of a long railway journey to the wilds of Colorado. The children are neither imps nor angels, but just such children as are found in every happy home. The pictures are so graphically drawn that we feel well acquainted with Rob an? Nelly, have travelled with them and climbed mountains and found silver mines, and know all about the rude life made beautiful by a happy family, and can say of Nelly, with their German neighbor, Mr. Kleesman, Ach well, she haf better than any silver mine in her own self- " Chicago Inter-Ocean. In Nelly s Silver Mine Mrs. Helen Hunt Jackson has given us a true classic for the nursery and the school-room, but its readers will not be confined to any locality. Its vivid portraiture of Colorado life and its truth to child-nature give it a charm which the most experienced cannot fail to feel. It will stand by the side of Miss Edgeworth and Mrs. Barbauld in all the years to come." Mrs. Caroline H. Dall. " We heartily commend the book for its healthy spirit, its lively narrative, an* its freedom from most of the faults of books for children." Atlantic Monthly.
