PORTER, Anna Maria. Sailor's Friendship, and a Soldier's
Love, A (1805)
Monthly Review, 2nd ser. 50 (June 1806): 220.
This is not as it appears to be, a double title to the same story:
the sailor’s friendship and the soldier’s love being
exemplified in two short tales, which indeed have but little interest
in them. It is true that the sailor parts with his mistress in order
to preserve his Friend, and the soldier sacrifices his estate in
order to possess his Love!—which certainly are serious circumstances
in real life, but trifles in a modern novel.
