This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the s...ame format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself.

Excerpt from Magdalen Stafford, or a Gleam of Sunshine on a Rainy DayIt seems to me that my life has become like the course of a m...an advancing along an Alpine ledge, not daring to look above, below, or on either hand, but simply taking heed to the next step, all faculties absorbed in the present moment. My mind is ex hansted, and I must seize what relaxation the hour may offer. That is accomplished, and my work again pre sents itself. I do not ask how it is to end: I scarcely dare reﬂect how it began; and yet, during my solitary walk, it is to this point that my thoughts have been directed.I passed through the gate at the end of the avenue, to the open common. How beautiful were the ever shifting lights on the far hills! How soft the ﬂush that on the nearer woods told of the presence of Spring. But as I stood for a moment of enjoyment, the plovers, whom my approach had mused, swept past me, sending forth over the moor their melancholy wail; and that sound, linked as it is with so many me'mories, rufﬂed the surface of my pleasure, and I pursued my way along the winding sheep-walk towards the pool at the foot of the hill. There my pilgrimage terminated, its object being to convey the little store, that twice a week I have taken upon myself to supply, to the suffering occupant of the little hovel on the farthest side of the pool.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
