“A story of a boy's life at school, very pleasant to read, and, at the same time, very profitable. Many children who learn the collects every Sunday, without understanding them, may be led

to study them with much more interest by reading of the use that .Cecil Williams' made of them.”-Young Christian Soldier.


Thirteen thousand copies have been sold in England. 12mo, 421 pages, $1.50. “As a story it is very interesting, while it enforces in the plainest, clearest, and most satisfactory manner the full mean; ing of the weighty sentences in our Church Catechism. A little girl who found its study a repulsive task, because she failed to comprehend what she learned, is led, in the story, through the sympathetic aid of a kind lady, to love its teachings, and to mould her life by them. This book deserves a place in every household.”—Episcopal Register.

Though issued but a short time in England, five thousand copies have already been sold. 12mo, 484 pages, $1.50.

“The story itself is interesting, showing how Sunday teaching can be applied to the temptations and difficulties which arise during the weck. There is good, sound, religious instruction in these Sunday Echoes, and much wise counsel, which may be profitable to all readers, great or small; and children will feel more interest in the story of the Israelites after reading it than they did before."-Athenæum.
