John Ayscough's Letters to His Mother, During 1914,
John A yscough continually testified by his readers, by readers who have never met him, and (living far from England) probably never will meet him; and partly because all who are his readers must know by how rare a bond of love and devotion he and his mother were united. The letters contained in this volume were the last he ever did write to her, and they were written during his absence on active service in France and Flanders, two circumstances which I have thought might give them a special interest. For nve-and-twenty years A yscough smother had been in every sense dependent upon her son; for many years she had hardly suffered him to leave her, even on the briefest absence :she was eighty-five years old and in most precarious health. His departure for the front was a blow from which she never recovered: the blow which did in fact bring her long life to its end. Knowing well how this almost must be, it was her sons 6ne preoccupation to bridge that absence as much as was simply possible by unfailing frequency of letters, and further, by seldom in those letters allowing her to picture him as in danger or discomfort. He wanted, if he could, to make her imagine him as enjoying a complete change, full of interest, and having no drawback but the separation from herself that it involve...

Remarks on the Letters from an American farmer;
The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press.

Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.Delve into what it was like to live during the eighteenth century by reading the first-hand accounts of everyday people, including city dwellers and farmers, businessmen and bankers, artisans and merchants, artists and their patrons, politicians and their constituents.

Levia-Pondera: An Essay Book (Classic
Excerpt from Levia-Pondera: An Essay BookNearly thirty years ago I had an Opportunity Of visit ing Abbotsford, and for the next ten years I never had any doubt of my deep regret that I had not clutched greedily at the chance and forced it into a fact, to remember ever after; during the rest of the intervening time I have not been SO sure. Of course it matters much less being disappointed in a great man's things than finding the great man himself an anti climax, as has happened to some literary pilgrims who have found in his shrine the object of their worship, still alive and speechless. Certainly there would have been no disappointment if one had lived long enough ago to find one's self face to face with Sir Walter Scott: none who did were ever disappointed. And it is likely that most of those who go to Abbotsford now so fortify themselves with the determination to be more than satisfied that wild horses (proverbially persuasive) would not draw from them any admission that there has been anything lacking. But so much good resolu tion is a supererogation when we are pretty sure we Shall not need it for practical purposes.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
