Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note:
Includes bibliographical references (pages 249-254).
Formatted Contents Note:
Brown sails, blue water and highlanders -- Happy, heedless victims -- Rubs and knocks and competition -- The huge world that roars hard by -- Journeymen in this great whirling London mill -- The memory of the glades and wood -- I liked to get my meals regular and then to prop my back against a bit of rock and snooze a bit, and wake up and think of things going on -- Woman as but a drab thing -- I hardly feel I tread the earth. I only know that thou art mine -- I wish, oh how I wish, I had married an Indian half-breed -- There was a story in which a mole, a beever, a badjerand a water rat was characters -- Its much more sensible to pretend the world is fairy-land than an uninteresting dust heap -- The somewhat inadequate things that really come off -- Noble ideals, steadfast purposes -- The fellow that walks alone.
