Wayside Wisdom; or, Solomon's Ideas of Things

Author: John Colwell
Publisher: T. Woolmer
Publish Date: 1886

Well meant. Country friends will be amused and edified by it. Our author has not hit the dialect of any one county; but has made a shot at several. He needs to keep up his characters better; for he mingles with rustic speech a few words which no "Hodge" would use, and this spoils the effect. The publishers should either give no woodcuts at all or else make them passable. We expect to see the Rev. John Colwell with his pen in hand again and we feel sure of something first rate from him, for he has it in him.
