Editorial Commentary

‘This month we have a fine and varied collection of short stories for fiction “revellers”: In the “Captain of New France” by Louis Arthur Cunningham we have a very romantic adventure written in D’Orsay-Sabatini manner – scenery, history and thrills, they’re all there taken from quite probable happenings two centuries ago.’ (Editorial. Canadian Home Journal Nov. 1928: 120)

‘And Louis Arthur Cunningham, recorder of the romance of ship-building at Shelburne, has just taken unto himself a wife and settled down not far from Saint John, N.B.’ (In the Editor's Confidence. Editorial. Maclean's 15 Sept. 1929: 88)

‘Before we leave this issue, we could like to introduce you to Father Ahab, one of the most amusing ancients Louis Arthur Cunningham has yet created. You will find him on page fifteen.’  (In the Editor’s Confidence. Editorial. Maclean’s 15 Dec. 1933: 2)

'Louis Arthur Cunningham finds keen enjoyment in books, walks at dawn, gardens in the moonlight, collies, good companions – and in pipes! But he has another source of enjoyment of more importance to his readers – he likes best to write of Acadia, to him an inexhaustible well of beauty. And all agree that, in drawing on that well, he has enriched the world of fiction.’ (Editorial. Canadian Home Journal July 1936: n.p.)

‘“Fog Over Fundy,” a great serial that has won widespread approval, comes to an end in this issue ...’ (Editorial. Canadian Home Journal Feb. 1937: n.p.)

‘There would have to be a story about a doctor in this issue. Just as if it wasn’t enough to have actually heard one say to us, “You’d better not try to write for a few days. Even if you miss an issue, the world will go on pretty much the same.” And it would be a story about a doctor who performs a marvellous operation on a famous singer’s throat. It’s entitled “Victory,” and it’s one page sixteen. And we can’t hold anything against Louis Arthur Cunningham, who wrote it, because, after all, he doesn’t know that medical science has failed utterly to stop the sneezing of a man who doesn’t even want to sing.’ (In the Editor’s Confidence. Editorial. Maclean’s 15 Mar. 1937: 2)
