Visit us online at www.­1stWorldLibrary.­ORG - Mamma, how much longer have we got to ride? asked Nan Bobbsey, turning in her seat in the railroad car, to look at her parents, who sat behind her. "Are you getting tired?­" asked Nan's brother Bert. "If you are I'll sit next to the window, and watch the tele-­graph poles and trees go by. Maybe that's what tires you, Nan,­" he added, and his father smiled, for he saw that Bert had two thoughts for himself, and one for his sister. "No, I'm not tired of the scenery,­" answered the brown-­haired and brown-­eyed girl, "but you may sit next the window, Bert, if you like.­"

Author:

The book is broken up into four parts. The first section, "Mrs Baines" details the adolescence of both Sophia and Constance, and their life in their father's shop and house (a combined property)[2]. The father is ill and bedridden, and the main adult in their life is Mrs Baines, their mother.

By the end of the first book, Sophia (whose name reflects her sophistication, as opposed to the constant Constance) has eloped with a travelling salesman. Constance meanwhile marries Mr Povey, who works in the shop.

The second part, "Constance", details the life of Constance from that point forward up until the time she is reunited with her sister in old age. Her life, although outwardly prosaic, is nevertheless filled with personal incident, including the death of her husband, Mr Povey, and her concerns about the character and behaviour of her son.

The third part, "Sophia", carries forward the story of what happened to Sophia after her elopement. Abandoned by her husband in Paris, Sophia . . .

From the first the voyage was going wrong. Routed out of my hotel on a bitter March morning, I had crossed Baltimore and reached the pier-­end precisely on time. At nine o’clock the tug was to have taken me down the bay and put me on board the Elsinore, and with growing irritation I sat frozen inside my taxicab and waited. On the seat, outside, the driver and Wada sat hunched in a temperature perhaps half a degree colder than mine. And there was no tug.

pubOne.­info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. 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 would not have risen to— with singular serenity. “Simply ask them to take you in on the footing of a lodger”— I don't think that unaided I should have risen to that. I was beating about the bush, trying to be ingenious, wondering by what combination of arts I might become an acquaintance, when she offered this happy suggestion that the way to become an acquaintance was first to become an inmate. Her actual knowledge of the . . .

John, also known as Hans; n? Johannes[1] (2 February 1455 ? 20 February 1513) was King of Denmark (1481?­1513), Norway (1483?­1513) and as John II (Swedish: Johan II) of Sweden (1497?­1501) in the Kalmar Union, and also Duke of Schleswig and Holstein. The three most important political goals of King John seem to have been the restoration of the Kalmar Union, reduction of the dominance of the Hanseatic League and the building of a strong Danish royal power.
