I read this book with much enjoyment in 1940. On page 438 of the December 1893 issue of The Catholic World the reviewer states: "A real bright live book of the present day, redolent of youthful life and faithful as to the reflection of a mirror to the originals of modern boy life as beheld in many of our Catholic institutions, we have not as yet seen any which approaches this fine work."
