A saga of a British middle class Hunter family as their fairly predictable lives are disrupted by WWI. This isn’t a military study of Wellington’s army, but a detailed examination of how Britain managed to stay in the fight for so long, and ultimately be among the victors. How long the war would last or in what fashion it would end no man could tell, nor did I at this moment care. Given the history outlined in this paper, we conclude that the Palestinians have gotten “the short end of the stick” and that justice demands that wrongs should be righted.

The higher you go, the further down you can fall. Judaism originally had authoritative priests, and so a real hierarchy; but in the Middle Ages this had been lost, and Jewish religious authorities were only influential to the extent of their reputation for learning and holiness.

And now, six hours into the evening's entertainment, now, out came the clown they'd all been waiting for--Grimaldi, known to them all as "Joe"--about to fight a bout of fisticuffs with a pile of animated vegetables...or rather a pile of vegetables which he had assembled into a kind of person which then, somehow, at the tap of a sword, had come to life.

As the collection and the poem are very little known in England, and as it is certainly apposite to the Reliques of Robert Burns, we venture to transcribe the concluding ditty, chanted by the ballad-singer at the request of the company, whose ``mirth and fun have now grown fast and furious,'' and set them above all sublunary terrors of jails, stocks, and whipping-posts.

These have been published under the care of a sensible and intelligent editor, who has done a great deal to throw light upon the subject, but has been occasionally misled into giving a little too much credit to the representations of his author, who wrote under the influence of disappointment and ill-humour.
