Mr. Chadwick has evidently written because he could not help it, and his verses are genuine poetry. He has taken counsel with his own mind and heart; his verse is sincere and truthful, and its melody is perfect.New York Times.
With a full, rich nature, and a keen poetic sense, Mr. Chadwick has put into these little pieces sweetness and light, tenderness and subtle beauty.New York Evening Post.
