    Dear Folks car, bird, houses, etc. There is a statue of her by the steps of the British Museum. Apparently authors and exhibitors thought so. All we need to know is when the ship sets sail from Hamburg.

    It was all auspiciously, well-nigh extravagantly, congruous; nothing certainly could have been called more modern than all the elements and suggestions of his situation for the hour, the very spot in London that could best serve as a centre for vibrations the keenest and most various; a challenge to the appreciation of life, to that of the whole range of the possible English future, at its most uplifting. Rupert Brooke made them revive as soon as one began to know him, or in other words made one want to read back into him each of his promoting causes without exception, to trace to some source in the ambient air almost any one, at a venture, of his aspects; so precious a loose and careless bundle of happy references did that inveterate trick of giving the go-by to over-emphasis which he shared with his general kind fail to prevent your feeling sure of his having about him. Everything about him of keenest and brightest yes, absolutely of brightest suggestion made so for his having been charged with every privilege, every humour, of our merciless actuality, our fatal excess of opportunity, that what indeed could the full assurance of this be but that, finding in him the most charming object in its course, the great tide was to lift him and sweep him away? Queen of the night behind, and of the gods around, and of the city below—here, if at all, you think, may one find the answer to the riddle.

    But right now, during the winter, we do not work every day; however, from 1 March work will proceed at full speed. He lives in New York City. It is a life of good salary, steady hours, sufficient leisure, and entire dignity. M, 3rd Bn. The self-consciousness, the poetic, of his so free figuration in verse, only in verse, oddly enough of the unpleasant to behold, to touch, or even to smell, was certainly, I think, nothing if not "self-conscious," but there were so many things in his consciousness, which was never in the least unpeopled, that it would have been a rare chance had his projection of the self that we are so apt to make an object of invidious allusion stayed out.

He promptly recovered and returned to camp, whence it was testified that his specific practical aptitude, under the lively call, left nothing to be desired—a fact that expressed again, to the perception of his circle, with what truth the spring of inspiration worked in him, in the sense, I mean, that his imagination itself shouldered and made light of the material load.

People who cared not who the winner was - yet they will say he died for his country, keeping it free.

He drew the cigar from his lips, shot it back with a popping noise into the round hole cigars had worn at the corner of his mouth, and said, "Anyway, it's some country.

I just happened to be there, so they told me that they needed someone to identify a boy they just brought in from my company. The medal of the mere pleasant had always a reverse for him, and it was generally in that substitute he was most interested.

Huger offers equal insight into many of the larger strategic challenges the Confederacy faced, such as when he fatefully predicted the fall of Vicksburg in his letters long before the actual event.

The ways of our lords were ever riddling and obscure.
