PORTER, Anna Maria. Sailor's Friendship, and a Soldier's Love, A (1805)

Contemporary Reviews

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.
