Notes
On p. 255 the Editors’ Note 2 to Letter 534 reads: “The unsigned review [sc. of An Inland Voyage] in the <i>Saturday Review</i> of 1 June criticises the ‘perverted ingenuities of expression’ and the ‘extreme trouble he takes to go out of his way to pick circumlocutory phrases when there are short and simple words that would apparently answer his purpose’. But it praises the ‘flashes of unaffected liveliness’, and the ‘telling little sketches of character’ and concludes that ‘with all its faults and affectations, the little book is very lively and pleasant reading. (Maixner, 3).” <br/> [Maixner, 3 = Review no. 3 in <i>Robert Louis Stevenson: The Critical Heritage</i>, ed. Paul Maixner (London, 1981).]
