Appleton. The Reds of the Midi," as explained, is complete as it is. La Terreur describes "The Red Terror" in France. The new romance relates the history of the year for which Pascalet was absent, and of some years more.

Love in Friendship


With a Preface in Fragments from Stendhal



1 vol. in 8vo, bound in cloth, price $1.50.

FRANCISQUE SARCEY says in Le Figaro: "Here is a book which is talked of a great deal, for it is one of the prettiest dramas of real life ever related to the public. Must I say that well-informed people affirm that the letters of the man, true, or almost true, hardly arranged, were written by Guy de Maupassant?. I like the book, and it seems to me it will have a place in the collection, so voluminous already, of modern ways of love."

"This correspondence is all powdered with exquisite things, and is instinct with a subtlety leading one on and on."-N. Y. Evening Post.

"The device is not new; but seldom has it been carried out more effectively and powerfully than in this case... Cannot this be called a rather remarkable story?"-Boston Literary World.
