Crossfield; or, Passages in the Life of a Rector

Author: Nestor
Publisher: Shaw and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

A book written in that stiff Protestant style which we almost feared was extinct. Is the writer an Orangeman? We should think Mr. Newdegate would be in ecstasies over him. There is a great deal of truth in these opinions; but it is truth to which the majority of people nowadays reply with a smile. It is a regular rib roasting for those who were formerly known as Puseyites, who now think themselves to be the soundest members of the Church of England. What a noise there was thirty years ago about altars and candles! Things are a thousand times worse now, but few raise any outcry unless it be here and there a Nestor and he is regarded as an antediluvian.
