“ The Romance which Mr. Thoms has dissected with ruthless thoroughness."--Saturday Review.
"Mr. Thoms, the able Editor of that successful little farrago of learning, oddities, absurdities, and shrewdnesses, Notes and Queries, perhaps the one weekly newspaper which will be consulted three hundred years hence, has been trying very hard to get at the truth of the Hannah Lightfoot story. It is nearly impossible to prove a negative, and quite impossible to prove a negative about the secret history of Courts ; but Mr. Thoms has certainly succeeded in raising a violent presumption that the story is a delusion, probably based on some intrigue carried on by one of the Royal Family."
