Comments¶ The first book, preceded by a pamphlet on religious matters, by the older brother of James Russell Lowell. Robert Traill Spence Lowell was a highly regarded author in his own right, and The New Priest at Conception Bay - an autobiographical novel about his experiences as a priest in Newfoundland - is considered his best work.
