The writer points out some slips and signs of carelessness in the novel. One of these occurs in the following passage: '"Hartley fell a victim to his professional courage, in withstanding the progress of a contagious distemper, which he at length caught, and under which he sank," vol. 2, p. 367'. Another one occurs in a passage which describes a medical practitioner's 'great leathern pocket-book in which he deposited particular papers, with a small supply of the most necessary and active medicines'.
