Essays written in the character of "Cornelius O'Dowd" and published anonymously.

Charles James Lever (1806 - 1872) was an Irish novelist.

Charles Lever was an exceedingly prolific writer who enjoyed a wide popularity in his own day, the pink covers opf the monthly parts of his novels rivaling the yellows of Thackeray and the greens of Dickens. He was an Irishman who wrote about his countrymen, and his readers thoroughly relished the wealth of incident with which his books were packed and the inexhaustible fund of stories with which they were filled. [All the Year Round p. 12]
