"Lawson's article, undated but probably written in 1899, takes the [de Rougemont] hoax and uses it to propound his own theories about the relevant places of fact and fiction, and Australian fiction in particular. It is notable for its defence of de Rougemont in the wake of a violent reaction from a previously all too credulous public." - La Trobe Library Journal 28, 1981, p.95
