LAST DAYS IN A DUTCH HOTEL

(1897)

When we said that we were going to Scheveningen, in the middle of September, the portier of the hotel at The Hague was sure we should be very cold, perhaps because we had suffered so much in his house already; and he was right, for the wind blew with a Dutch tenacity of purpose for a whole week, so that the guests thinly peopling the vast hostelry seemed to rustle through its chilly halls and corridors like so many autumn leaves. We were but a ...

FORTY MINUTES LATE

By F. Hopkinson Smith

1909

It began to snow half an hour after the train started a fine grained, slanting, determined snow that forced its way between the bellows of the vestibules, and deposited itself in mounds of powdered salt all over the platforms and steps. Even the porter had caught some puffs on his depot coat with the red cape, and so had the conductor, from the way he thrashed his cap on the back of the seat in front of mine. "Yes, gettin' worse," he said in answer to an inquiring lift of my eyebrows. "Everything will be b...

THE VOYAGE OF THE OREGON FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO SANTIAGO IN 1898

AS TOLD BY ONE OF THE CREW

PRIVATELY PRINTED THE MERRYMOUNT PRESS BOSTON 1908

[ One hundred and twenty five copies printed ]

To the Reader

Almost ten years have passed since the country followed, in scanty telegram from port to port, the Oregon speeding down one side of a continent and up the other to Bahia; then came two anxious, silent weeks when apprehension and fear pictured four Spanish cruisers with a pack of torpedo boats sailing out into the west athwart the lone ship's course,...

Hoe ik een week te Fez doorbracht De Aarde en haar Volken, 1908 –by: Jean Marlys

First Page:

HOE IK EEN WEEK TE FEZ DOORBRACHT.

Naar het Fransch van Jean Marlys.

Als men te Fez aankomt na een reis door het dal, dat er van Rabat heen leidt, maakt de stad den indruk van bijzonder klein te zijn, en ze blijft maar nietig achter haar grijze muren, wanneer men dichterbij komt. Aan de linkerzijde verheffen zich de lange wallen van een kasbah, eindigend in een soort van bastille, die een verzwakte nabootsing lijkt van het kasteel der Zeven Torens te Stamboel, zooals de bijna zwarte, gekanteelde en versterkte muren denken doen aan de wallen van Konstanti...

Zanzibar, de stapelplaats van Oost-Afrika De Aarde en haar Volken, 1908

First Page:

ZANZIBAR, DE STAPELPLAATS VAN OOST AFRIKA.

Naar het Fransch van Piere de Myrica.

Zanzibar heeft een verleden van bloedige oorlogen, waarin naast grootsche heldendaden der conquistadores en der Arabieren, sombere verhalen te hooren zijn over den slavenhandel, waar de naam van Zanzibar aan verbonden is.

Het eiland, waar de stad op is gebouwd, ligt midden op den weg der schepen, die, met den moesson mee, langs de oostkust van Afrika varen, en al sedert de verre oudheid was het een plaats van oponthoud voor al diegenen, die goud, ivoor en wierook uit de kustlanden ...

Taking Tales, Instructive and Entertaining Reading, by W.H.G. Kingston.

This book is a collection of six tales. Originally each of these was published as a separate book, at a low price. Each story was full of interest, and the intention was that the families of England would sit down as a family to read and discuss the story.

In this collection we have a story about an English country miller; a boy who goes to sea; a family who settle in Canada; a boy who joins the army and serves in the ...
