He'had been told that God had made him, -'ft0"*-' and the world, and everything that was in the world, and he was accustomed to say a little form of prayer to this same God every night at bedtime and every morning on rising--the servant Gerty at Hereford Square had taught him to do so, and his "Muzzy" had blandly approved of Gerty's religious zeal. But he had no real conception as to Whom he was addressing himself. The sweet old story, the grand story of the selfless Christ, had been told him in a sort of vague and inconsequent manner, but he had not understood it a bit. One of his petitions to Heaven, invented by Gerty, ran thus: "Dear Jesus, bless father, bless mother, make me a good boy, and save my soul for Heaven, amen!" But he had no sort of idea what his "soul" was, or why it should be so carefully "saved for Heaven." What was the good of his soul? And what was Heaven? Often he thought he would ask Rattling Jack, but he hesitated to do so lest that venerable cynic should empty vials of wrath on his defenceless head for being in such a state of ignorance. And so the days went on, and he was fast becoming used to the companionship of the boy-scavengers on the beech and the conversation of Rattling Jack when a sudden and glorious break occurred in the clouds of his dull sky. Major Desmond came down from London unexpectedly to see his father and mother, and to ask that he might be allowed to go to Scotland and stay a whole month with Miss Leslie at a beautiful place she had taken there for the summer on the fairy shores of Loch Katrine. He was amusing himself by the sea as usual, putting helpless baby-crabs into a glass bottle, when his mother's maid-of-all-work came hurrying down to find him, and, seizing him suddenly by the...
This beautifully photographed series of board books shows us the major stages in a baby’s first year the first day, sitting, crawling, and walking. Mother, father, and big brother also appear. Finally in Not a Baby Anymore! the little boy has made the amazing transition to walking, and he has even started day care. We see him having his first haircut and getting all dressed up in time to celebrate his very first birthday party.
From the preface:"Some twenty-eight years ago I wrote and published a small book recounting my personal experiences in the Civil War, but this book is long out of print, and the publication exhausted. At the urgent request of some of my old comrades who still survive, and of friends and my own family, I have undertaken the task of rewriting and publishing this story.As stated in the preface to the former volume, the principal object of this work is to record, largely from memory, and after the lapse of many years (now nearly half a century) since the termination of the war between the states of the Federal Union, the history, conduct, character and deeds of the men who composed Company D, Seventh regiment of Virginia infantry, and the part they bore in that memorable conflict.The chief motive which inspires this undertaking is to give some meager idea of the Confederate soldier in the ranks, and of his individual deeds of heroism, particularly of that patriotic, self-sacrificing, brave company of men with whose fortunes and destiny my own were linked for four long years of blood and carnage, and to whom during that period I was bound by ties stronger than hooks of steel; whose confidence and friendship I fully shared, and as fully reciprocated.To the surviving members of that company, to the widows and children, broken-hearted mothers, and to gray-haired, disconsolate fathers (if such still live) of those who fell amidst the battle and beneath its thunders, or perished from wounds or disease, this work is dedicated. The character of the men who composed that company, and their deeds of valor and heroism, will ever live, and in the hearts of our people will be enshrined the names of the gallant dead as well as of the living, as the champions of constitutional liberty. They will be held in grateful remembrance by their own countrymen, appreciated and recognized by all people of all lands, who admire brave deeds, true courage, and devotion of American soldiers to cause and country."
