I read this book in 1936 or 1937. It was the first book by Father Finn which I read, and it was the first book he had published, in 1891. On page 389 of The Guide to Catholic Literature 1888-1940 it is shown that the book has 255 pages and its selling price was $1,25 and was publshed by Benziger. The comment thereon is: "Tom is a thorough boy and his life in a Catholic boarding school is narrated in a lively style." The Catholic World in volume 64 at page 605 (Jan 1892) carried a note on the book. I know I was very caught up in the story when I read it--it was a book which we had at home and we did not have many books at our house.. I went on to read 10 more books by Father Finn--all I could lay hands on. ( )
