Henry Kirke (1842 – 1925). The author has succeeded in giving a full and interesting account of the history and changes of the last quarter of a century in this Central American Colony. The active life still lies upon the coast-line. Georgetown is in its way as fine a city as those which old Spain erected in South America or the Antilles, and admirably administered. Mr. Kirke’s chapters on the various races which have immigrated or have been imported to provide labour are especially interesting.
