Its heroes, Dudley and Roy, otherwise known as "David and Jonathan," are cousins, and live with their grandmother. A strenuous soul in a frail body, Roy burns with the desire to do some great deed, and feels that all he lacks is opportunity. After many mistakes, leading to mishaps amusing and serious, his opportunity comes to him. The narrative inculcates many useful lessons.—The Literary News (1898).

Aside from its lively interest, this story will be good for boys to read. It does not preach, but its influence is strong for the right, and it leaves a smack of hearty encouragement in the youthful mind.—The Independent (1902).

Here is a capital little story for boys, for girls, or for grown people. Of course, it is a story with a moral, and the moral is always obvious; but it does not interrupt the story, which is good.—Church Standard (1902).

The story is a very pretty one, and nice to give little children or to put in a Sunday-school library. The sentiment is not mawkish nor the religious element overdone.—Fleming H. Revell Company (1902).
