Half of the inhabitants of Great Britain have been sold a patent medicine of peculiar austerity.

Some of the characters in these stories complain of this medicine: but there is a far worse corrective others maintain, namely the Red Pills of Old Uncle Joe. The social medicines of the kindly British spare you from the necessity of taking Old Uncle Joes Red Pills.Is this a political book? some readers may protest.

No more, it can with truth be answered, than several of Charles Dickenss books, and all by Mr. Shaw. If Mr. Wyndham Lewiss characters are obsessed by politics, it is because today our lives are saturated with their poisons. It is impossible for a work of narrative fiction worth reading to contain less politics than Rotting Hill.
