In her Irish stories Mrs. Hall excels. Her rustic maidens are copied from the cottage; nothing can be more faithful and lively: nor are her hinds and husbandmen any thing Inferior. We nowhere see the Irish character more justly or so pleasantly represented. She sees Nature in her proper dimensions: therein, but no exaggeration, and life always." Allibone
