Excerpt from Twenty-Five Years of Massachusetts Politics: From Russell to McCall, 1890-1915

A book like Mr. Hennessy's, therefore, has both value and use fulness, because it contains a great array of facts, carefully verified and clearly arranged, which it is almost impossible for any man readily to find without, in many cases at least, great labor and re search. But Mr. Hennessy's book is much more than this - far more than a compilation of facts and figures. It gives the impres sions made upon a trained observer of politics, and of the men em gaged in them, during a quarter of a century.

Although it professes to deal only with Massachusetts, in fol lowing the fortunes Oi the State one is led insensibly and necessarily into the wider fields of national elections and of national campaigns. Mr. Hennessy has made good use of all his opportunities and with practiced hand, and a keen interest in his subject gives us not only a picture of the time which he depicts, and which will always be of value as the impression of one who was both chronicler and critic from day to day, but he also offers us,brief and well drawn sketches of the men who have been conspicuous in the public life of the State, portraits which possess all the vividness that springs from personal acquaintance and careful Observation.
