Young America Reads “Ever since the publication of Mr. James’s ‘study,’ called “Daisy Miller,” young America has been greatly excited by that little book. It still holds the market, with a rapid sale, and may be seen in every railway car in the land in the hand of some interested reader. The questions of whether Daisy Miller is a fair type of the American girl in Europe, or whether she is too hardly handled, or whether she is not handled hardly enough, are living questions in the conversations of all young people.” -- Boston Daily Advertiser , Dec 1879

Young America Reads At our watering place this summer we read ‘out,’ as our English friends say, Mr. James’s clever story of Daisy Miller. We laughed and cried over it, and while our gentleman mostly agreed that it was cruelly unfair to American girls, most of the women declared that it was as over-true picture. A few of us, anyhow, stood up for our girls. ‘At any rate, we said, such people are only to be found in the remote West, and one year’s education will suffice, with their quick perceptions, to give them good manners.’ Now it happens that I was one of the warmest defenders of the fair, and this is what befell me on my way home….” -- Boston Daily Advertiser Oct. 1878.
