The Bab Ballads - Part 3

By: Various

Poetry

Excerpt: The Yarn Of The Nancy Bell // 'Twas on the shores that round our coast // From Deal to Ramsgate span, // That I found alone on a piece of stone // An elderly naval man. // His hair was weedy, his beard was long, // And weedy and long was he, // And I heard this wight on the shore recite, // In a singular minor key: // Oh, I am a cook and a captain bold, // And the mate of the Nancy brig, // And a bo'sun tight, and a midshipmite, // And the crew of the captain's ...

Sense and Sensibility

By: Jane Austen

Excerpt: Chapter 1; THE family of Dashwood had been long settled in Sussex. Their estate was large, and their residence was at Norland Park, in the centre of their property, where, for many generations, they had lived in so respectable a manner, as to engage the general good opinion of their surrounding acquaintance.

Love-Letters between a Nobleman and His Sister

By: Aphra Behn

In the time of the rebellion of the true Protestant Huguenot in Paris, under the conduct of the Prince of Conde (whom we will call Cesario) many illustrious persons were drawn into the association, amongst which there was one, whose quality and fortune (joined with his youth and beauty) rendered him more elevated in the esteem of the gay part of the world than most of that age. In his tender years (unhappily enough) he chanced to fall in love with a lady, whom we will ca...

U.S. Exports and Imports by Harmonized Commodity, 1996 Annual

By: U.S. Census Bureau Department

Statistical Reference Document

Excerpt: Published information on U.S. exports of merchandise from the United States to all countries, except Canada, is compiled primarily from copies of Shipper?s Export Declarations (SED?s) that must be filed with customs officials.

The U.S. Customs Service initially collects the SED at the port of export and subsequently transmits it to the...

The Beast in the Jungle

By: Henry James

CHAPTER I: What determined the speech that startled him in the course of their encounter scarcely matters, being probably but some words spoken by himself quite without intention -- spoken as they lingered and slowly moved together after their renewal of acquaintance. He had been conveyed by friends an hour or two before to the house at which she was staying; the party of visitors at the other house, of whom he was one, and thanks to whom it was his theory, as always, th...

The Aspern Papers

By: Henry James

I had taken Mrs. Prest into my confidence; in truth without her I should have made but little advance, for the fruitful idea in the whole business dropped from her friendly lips. It was she who invented the short cut, who severed the Gordian knot. It is not supposed to be the nature of women to rise as a general thing to the largest and most liberal view -- I mean of a practical scheme; but it has struck me that they sometimes throw off a bold conception -- such as a man...

Building an Environmental Management Information System (Emis)

By: Sustainable Cities Programme

Economics

Information is crucial to any planning and management activity. This of course is a truism. The problem is (a) to determine what data and information is needed for the purpose at hand; (b) to find out if it exists and where; (c) how to get hold of it if, it exists, and how to collect it if it does not; (d) how to store this information in easily accessible and referenced form; (e) how to interpret the data, resolve questions of quality, contradictions and incompleteness;...

Aradia, Or the Gospel of the Witches

By: Charles G. Leland

If the reader has ever met with the works of the learned folk-lorist G. Pitre, or the articles contributed by Lady Vere De Vere to the Italian Rivista, or that of J. H. Andrews to Folk-Lore, [1] he will be aware that there are in Italy great numbers of strege, fortune-tellers or witches, who divine by cards, perform strange ceremonies in which spirits are supposed to be invoked, make and sell amulets, and, in fact, comport themselves generally as their reputed kind are w...

The Power of Our Words

By: Liz Mcgrath

Do you know that an empowering word can spark ideas, open doors, change attitudes, and create solutions? Words can do all these things and much more. They have the potency to redefine personalities, lives, and entire communities. Just think of some of the things words are used for every day: To communicate a message To express a feeling To interact with others To associate meaning, intention, and tone To record history To tell stories And so much more! When used the righ...
