THE SERVICE OF THE POOR. An Enquiry into the Reasons for and against the Establishment of Religious Sisterhoods for Charitable Purposes. By Caroline E. Stephen. Crown 8 vo, 6s. 6d.

"She examines the question patiently and thoroughly, and her book contains much information, and will be useful as a text-book to those who are desirous to use their abilities to the best advantage in the wide and difficult field of philanthropy."—Athenæum.

"We recommend Miss Stephen's book to all who are thinking of entering sisterhoods, and still more to all who are engaged in the conduct of them. They will find in it much that deserves consideration, much from which, if they will honestly apply it, they cannot fail to derive profit."—Saturday Review.

HOMES OF THE LONDON POOR. By Octavia Hill. Extra fcap. 8vo, 3s. 6d.

"There are few who have so good a right to be heard on the matter as the author of this volume. She has not only thought long and deeply on the problem to be solved, but has worked nobly to aid in its solution. . . . We know nothing in literature of this kind more touching than the simple, unaffected tale of her struggles, disappointments, and triumphs. There is not a word of mere sentimentalism in any one of her papers ; she is clear, practical, and definite."—Globe.
