Excerpt from a Review by: Advocate of Peace through Justice:
The author shows the fine co-operative spirit of the Red-Cross, in whose service he spent some time in Puerto Rico. He has spared no pains, evidently, to obtain data from various American bureaus and commissioners, and his bibliography comes from the Director of the Carnegie Library at San Juan. Yet the story is written in one dimension. Judging from internal evidence, Mr. Mixer is not himself familiar with the Spanish language and, possibly for that reason, is not able sympathetically to interpret the history of the island.
