He has been induced to insert it here from the idea, that many will feel the same curiosity to know something of the present state of Falos and its inhabitants that led him to make the journey.)Seville, 1828.Since I last wrote to you, I have made what I may term an American pilgrimage, to visit the little port of...

Passages From The French And Italian Notebooks - Volume 1 - TO TERNI. BORGHETTO
May 25th.--We were aroused at four o'clock this morning; had some eggs and coffee, and were ready to start between five and six; being thus matutinary, in order to get to Terni in time to see the falls. The road was very striking and picturesque; but I remember nothing particularly, till we came to Borghetto, which stands on a bluff, with a broad valley sweeping round it, through the midst of which flows the Tiber. There is an old castle on a projecting point; and we saw other battlemented fortresses,... Nonfictions - Post by : Nevilleg - Author : Nathaniel Hawthorne - Read : 2357

CHAPTER LXIX. THE TRIALThe miller, as he was starting from his house door, had called his daughter by her own name for the first time since her return home,--and Carry had been comforted. But no further comfort came to her during her journey to Salisbury from her father's speech. He hardly spoke the whole morning, and when he did say a word as to any matter on the work they had in hand, his voice was low and melancholy. Carry knew well, as did every one at Bullhampton, that her father was a man not... Long Stories - Post by : Ahmad - Author : Anthony Trollope - Read : 2598

CHAPTER IIIThe industry of making straw hats began at Hatboro', as many other industries have begun in New England, with no great local advantages, but simply because its founder happened to live there, and to believe that it would pay. There was a railroad, and labour of the sort he wanted was cheap and abundant in the village and the outlying farms. In time the work came to be done more and more by machinery, and to be gathered into large shops. The buildings increased in size and number; the single...

CHAPTER XI. IN THE PARKAlthough love had at length come to Millard like an inundation sweeping away the barriers of habit and preconception, he was quite aware that Phillida Callender's was not a temperament to forget duty in favor of inclination, and the strength of his desire to possess her served as a restraint upon his action. He followed the habits of business negotiation even in love-making; he put down his impatience and made his approaches slowly that he might make sure of success. As a prudent...

PART FIRST CHAPTER VII Remilly is built on a hill that rises from the left bank of the Meuse, presenting the appearance of an amphitheater; the one village street that meanders circuitously down the sharp descent was thronged with men, horses, and vehicles in dire confusion. Half-way up the hill, in front of the church, some drivers had managed to interlock the wheels of their guns, and all the oaths and blows of the artillerymen were unavailing to get them forward. Further down, near the woolen... Long Stories - Post by : CareyInternet - Author : Emile Zola - Read : 1165

This family bears: party per pale or and sable, an orle counterchanged and two lozenges counterchanged, with: "i, semper melius eris,"--a motto which, together with the two distaffs taken as supporters, proves the modesty of the burgher families in the days when the Orders held their allotted places in the State; and the naivete of our ancient customs by...

The hearing lasted three days, and I would not have missed a minute of it. As it was, I did not miss a syllable, and it was so deeply printed on my mind that I believe I could repeat it word for word if I had to. But, in the first place, I must try and realize the scene to you. I... Long Stories - Post by : RandalRay - Author : William Dean Howells - Read : 2553

CHAPTER V. LOOKING FOR WORKHarry shrank from telling his mother that he was about to lose his place, but he knew it must be done. In the evening, when he got home from the store, he seemed so restless that his mother asked him what was the matter with him. "This is my last week at the store, mother," he answered, soberly. "I suppose that is what makes me feel nervous." "Has Mr. Mead been induced by Mrs. Ross to turn you away?" asked Mrs. Gilbert, beginning to feel indignant. "No; he isn't that kind...

I have secured a guide, as you see, fearing I might get lost in the woods. I believe you know him?" "I have that honor," said Philip, superciliously. This was so much in Philip's ordinary style that Harry did not dream there was any collusion between them, and that Philip was here by appointment. "You haven't explained how you happen to be here," said Congreve.... Long Stories - Post by : bobbyred02 - Author : Horatio Alger - Read : 1658

CHAPTER XXXVII. TO THE RESCUEHerbert and his companion drew near the forest cabin, which had been the home of the former, without a suspicion that George Melville was in such dire peril. The boy was, indeed, thinking of him, but it was rather of the satisfaction his employer would feel at his good fortune. "Somehow I feel in a great hurry to get there, Jack," said Herbert. "I shall enjoy telling Mr. Melville of my good luck." "He's a fine chap, that Melville," said Jack Holden, meaning no disrespect...

CHAPTER IVDURING the day on which our story opened, Henry Ellis had obtained from a friend the first volume of Prescott's History of Mexico, then just from the press. An hour's perusal of its fascinating pages awakened in his mind a deep interest. "Just the book to read to Cara," said he to himself, closing the volume, and laying it aside. "She's too much taken up with mere fiction. But here is that truth which is stranger than fiction; and I am sure she will soon get absorbed in the narrative."...

VOLUME I CHAPTER VIIIThis extraordinary interview was now past. Pleasure as well as pain attended my reflections on it. I adhered to the promise I had improvidently given to Welbeck, but had excited displeasure, and perhaps suspicion, in the lady. She would find it hard to account for my silence. She would probably impute it to perverseness, or imagine it to flow from some incident connected with the death of Clavering, calculated to give a new edge to her curiosity. It was plain that some connection... Long Stories - Post by : Veselin_Andreev - Author : Charles Brockden Brown - Read : 1946

CHAPTER V. OLD BEN HAS A VISITORSt. John Ruthven was a young man of twenty-five, tall, thin, and with a face that was a mixture of craftiness and cowardice. He was the son of a half-brother to the late Colonel Ruthven and could boast of but few of the good traits of Marion's family. He lived on a plantation half a mile from the bay and spent most of his time in attention to his personal appearance and in horseback riding, of which, like many other Southerners, he was passionately fond. It was commonly... Long Stories - Post by : howdeedoodee - Author : Horatio Alger - Read : 895

CHAPTER XXIX. SOME UNEXPECTED CHANGESWhen Conrad came home his first visit was to his mother. "Has anything been found out about the stolen opera glass?" he asked, with a studied air of indifference. "I should say there had," she answered. "I followed the clew you suggested, and searched the boy's room. On the bureau I found the pawn ticket." "You don't say so! What a muff Ben must have been to leave it around so carelessly! What did you do with it?" "I waited till Mr. Lynx was conferring with...

Babbalanja Steps In Between Mohi And Yoomy; And Yoomy Relates A LegendEmbarking from Ohonoo, we at length found ourselves gliding by the pleasant shores of Tupia, an islet which according to Braid-Beard had for ages remained uninhabited by man. Much curiosity being expressed to know more of the isle, Mohi was about to turn over his chronicles, when, with modesty, the minstrel Yoomy interposed; saying, that if my Lord Media permitted, he himself would relate the legend.

CHAPTER XCVI. Samoa A SurgeonThe second day of our stay in Mondoldo was signalized by a noteworthy exhibition of the surgical skill of Samoa; who had often boasted, that though well versed in the science of breaking men's heads, he was equally an adept in mending their crockery. Overnight, Borabolla had directed his corps of sea-divers to repair early on the morrow, to a noted section of the great Mardian reef, for the purpose of procuring for our regalement some of the fine Hawk's-bill turtle, whose...

Depend upon it, that's the explanation: she has got frightened and has run away. "But what was there to frighten her?" said my father, pausing with a decanter in one hand and the bottle in the other. "It was the idea of the thing," replied my mother. "She has never been used to waiting at table. She was actually crying about it only...

CHAPTER XIX. ANOTHER FLIGHTFor perhaps a quarter of a minute Tom Swift and the president of the Universal Flying Machine Company of New York sat staring at one another. Mr. Gale's face wore a puzzled expression, and so did Tom's. And, after the last remark of the young inventor, the man who had called to see him said: "Well, perhaps we are talking at cross purposes. I don't blame you for not feeling very friendly toward us, and if I had had my way that last correspondence with you would never have...
