Concerning the first, Brander Matthews wrote, "the fundamental idea ? has extraordinary strength perhaps not fully developed in the story. But others of Mr. Bishop's stories -- "The Battle of Bunkerloo," [also present in this collection] for instance -- are admirable in all ways, conception and execution having an even excellence." - "The Philosophy of the Short Story," Lippincott, October, 1885.
