One of her most skilful and delightful stories, plotted and carried out with astonishing precision
Miss Crompton's management of her novels excites one's admiration. Of Chedsy Place, for instance, we remarked on its excellence of construction, difficulties never being evaded, and here in The Old Man's Birthday this is even more apparent . . . It is all well and wittily, sometimes touchingly, done.
