Buried Alive: A Tale Of These Days - Chapter 2. A Pail Buried Alive: A Tale Of These Days - Chapter 2. A Pail

Buried Alive: A Tale Of These Days - Chapter 2. A Pail
CHAPTER II. A PailSticking out of the pocket of Leek's light overcoat was a folded copy of the _Daily Telegraph_. Priam Farll was something of a dandy, and like all right-thinking dandies and all tailors, he objected to the suave line of a garment being spoilt by a free utilization of pockets.

Rudder Grange - Chapter XIV - Pomona takes a Bridal Trip
Our life at Rudder Grange seemed to be in no way materially changedby my becoming a vestryman. The cow gave about as much milk asbefore, and the hens laid the usual number of eggs.

Penguin Island - BOOK I - THE BEGINNINGS - Chapter II - THE APOSTOLICAL VOCATION OF SAINT MAEL
One day as he walked in meditation to the furthest point of a tranquil beach, for which rocks jutting out into the sea formed a rugged dam, he saw a trough of stone which floated like a boat upon the waters. It was in a vessel similar to this that St. Guirec, the great St. Columba, and so many holy men from Scotland and from Ireland had gone forth to evangelize Armorica. More recently still, St. Avoye having come from England, ascended the river Auray in a mortar made of rose-coloured granite into...
