WILD IRISH GIRL, The, a novel by Lady Morgan, published in 1806. It instantly became a favorite in England, went through seven editions in less than two years, and in 1807 reached its fourth American edition. The story is in the form of letters and suffers from the consequent limitations; but the sketches of Irish life are curious and picturesque.
