Hynes,(1) under the pseudonym "Ralph Ringwood,"(2) wrote a single novel for Beadle, which the latter published under three different titles; but he also wrote numerous short sketches for the Saturday Journal, the Banner Weekly, and the Fireside Companion.

Under the name "Ralph Ringwood" he wrote:
Starr's American Novels. No. 57
Pocket Novels. No. 80

† Correction made as per Volume 3.
