From New York Times (Nov 17, 1909)
Lighter than her longer novels — these new short stories are bright, sparkling, full of comedy and the joy of living, yet by no means lacking in tender humanity. The book begins with the story of a woman who cheats at bridge and bitterly repents, only to find that the woman who ought to have won the prize cheated, too, and the prize punch bowl wasn't real cut glass after all. Illustrated. Post 8vo. Cloth, $1.25.
