Excerpt from Webster's Calendar, or the Albany Almanac for the Year of Our Lord 1879: Being the Third After Bissextile or Leap Yea...r; And Until July 4th the 103d of American Independence; Also the 5639th Since the Creation, According to the JewsVice is most revolting when seen in contrast with virtue. A profane man, belching forth oaths among those who never swear: an atheist, pouring forth blasphemies in the presence of reverent and, holy men an inebriate, filthy and coarse, mingling with persons who never touch the debasing draught; the vulgar libertine, corrupting the air with unwholesome speech, to the disgust of those whose minds are pure; in every such instance vice is not alone as a sin but as a horrid deformity. It not only brings death, but also shame. It is not only wicked, but vile; it is not only wrong, but unspeakably mean. How lovely, by the same contrast. Does virtue appear! How sweet the lips of chastity; how pure the breath of reverent piety bow excellent the life of abstinence; how blessed the example that chides the erring, rebukes the unholy, impresses the young, guides the wanderer, and strengthens the weak by its silent power.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The Rival Heirs; being the Third and Last Chronicle of Aescendune: Large Print By A. D. Crake It was the evening of Thursday, the ...fifth of October, in year of grace one thousand and sixty and six. The setting sun was slowly sinking towards a dense bank of clouds, but as yet he gladdened the woods and hills around the old hall of Aescendune with his departing light. The watchman on the tower gazed upon a fair scene outspread before him; at his feet rolled the river, broad and deep, spanned by a rude wooden bridge; behind him rose the hills, crowned with forest; on his right hand lay the lowly habitations of the tenantry, the farmhouses of the churls, the yet humbler dwellings of the thralls or tillers of the soil; the barns and stables were filled with the produce of a goodly harvest; the meadows full of sheep and oxen--a scene of rich pastoral beauty. On his left hand a road led to the northeast, following at first the upward course of the river, until it left the stream and penetrated into the thick woodland. Just as the orb of day was descending into the dense bank of cloud afore mentioned, the watchman marked the sheen of spear and lance, gilded by the departing rays, where the road left the forest. Immediately he blew the huge curved horn which he carried at his belt; and at the blast the inhabitants of the castle and village poured forth; loud shouts of joy rent the air--the deeper exclamations of the aged, the glad huzzas of children--and all hastened along the road to greet the coming warriors. For well they knew that a glorious victory had gladdened the arms of old England; that at Stamford Bridge the proud Danes and Norwegians had sustained a crushing defeat, and been driven to seek refuge in their ships, and that these warriors, now approaching, were their own sons, husbands, or fathers, who had gone forth with Edmund, Thane of Aescendune, to fight under the royal banner of Harold, the hero king. Who shall describe the meeting, the glad embraces, the half-delirious joy with which those home-bred soldiers were welcomed? No hirelings they, who fought for mere glory, or lust of gold, but husbands, fathers of families--men who had left the ploughshare and pruning hook to fight for hearth and altar.
