Working in the Shade Lowly Sowing brings Glorious Reaping

Working in the Shade; or, Lowly Sowing Brings Glorious Reaping

by the Reverend Theodore P Wilson When he wrote "Frank Oldfield" some ten years before this book, and won a literary prize with it, Wilson showed that he was an author who could write a good story round a moral theme, and hold his readers' attention.

This is just such a book. You could look at it as no more than a very hard hitting sermon on the theme of Selfishness, but it is well written enough, with various episodes of selfishness le...

Amos Huntingdon

By Reverend T.P. Wilson This a very well written and interesting story, well up to Wilson's best. It deals with the various moral issues that beset a rather well off family. The old father makes his two sons an allowance, which one of them, Amos, manages well, while the other does not. Stability in the family is provided by an old maiden aunt, Kate, the sister of the old man. There was also a daughter, Julia, who had married a ne'er do well, and who had been shown the door ...

The busy citizens were engaged i...

The following monograph is the outgrowth of three earlier and shorter essays. The first, "Church and State in Connecticut to 1818," was presented to Yale University as a doctor's thesis.

Quicksilver The Boy With No Skid To His Wheel

First Page:

Quicksilver; or, The Boy With No Skid To His Wheel, by George Manville Fenn.

I don't know where they get titles for books from. The subtitle is "The Boy with no Skid to his Wheel", and that is the only mention of the word "skid" in the entire book. The only "wheel" mentioned is when the boy hero does cartwheels round the drawing room. And the said boy is referred to as "a globule of quicksilver". So I suppose it is something the author had in his mind before he began the book.
