To my worthy Friend Mr.
I am yours, butI am not the passenger or the beggar, I am your master, the one you were waiting for, and now I enter your life, no more to leave it, love, love, love, but to stay. The Phynodderree and Other Legends of the Isle of Man PREFACE. In no part of the British Islands has the belief in the existence of Fairies retained a stronger hold upon the people than in the Isle of Man. No better than a poor and loathsome beggar: And if the boy have not a woman's gift Gremio, 'tis now no time to vent our love: Listen to me, and if you speak me fair, fire, or shall I complain on thee to our mistress, whose hand, she being now at hand, thou shalt .
THE condition of our railways, and their financial prospects, should interest all of us. It has become a common re- mark, that railways have benefited ev- erybody but their projectors.
There is a strong doubt in the minds of many intel- ligent persons, whether any railways have actually paid a return on the capital in- vested in them.
It is believed that one of two results inevitably takes place: The general opinion of the com VOL. Even now, when they have recovered them- selves considerably, and are paying divi- dends again, capitalists are very shy of them.
It is our belief, contrary to the current opinion, that during the next decade such a change will have taken place in the con- dition of our railways, that we shall see them averaging eight to ten per cent. We pro- pose in the present article to give the rea- sons which have led us to this conclusion.
The causes to which may be traced the languishing condition of our railways may be stated as follows: Financial mismanagement; imperfect construction; and want of individual responsibility in their operation. Their excess of cost was owing to their having too much money; ours to our hav- ing too little.
They were robbed right The Future of American ]? The Great Northern, from London to York, three hundred and four- teen miles, expended five millions of dol- lars in getting its charter.
Ste- phenson says that the cost of land and compensation on British railways has av- eraged forty-three thousand dollars per mile, or as much as the total cost of the railways of Massachusetts.
American railway-companies have nev- er been troubled with too much mon- ey. They have usually commenced with a great desire for economy, selecting a cheap engineer, and getting a low es- timate of the probable cost.
A portion of the amount is subscribed for in stock, and the next thing is to run in debt. First mortgage bonds are issued and sold. The proceeds are expended, and the road is not half done. Another is- sue is sold at a great discount, and yet another, if possible.
As the road ap- proaches completion, the desperate Di- rectors raise money by the most desper- ate expedients, such as would bankrupt any merchant in the country in his pri- vate business.
Sometimes the road has vitality enough to work itself out of its troubles; but in other cases, unfortunate- ly too numerous, it passes into the hands of the bond-holders, and all it can earn goes to remunerate trustees, and pay le- gal expenses, commissions, etc.
The financial mistakes of our railways have been, endeavoring to do too much with too little money, and crippling them- selves with a load of debt that no project could stand under. This has led, as a matter of course, to the second evil,Im- perfect construction.
The projectors of a new railway have thus reasoned with themselves:- Love in The Flea and To his Coy Mistress Compare the ways John Donne in his poem The Flea and Andrew Marvell in his poem To his Coy Mistress present the theme of love.
Donne and Marvell’s poems have both similarities and differences, as they both present the theme of love in an unconventional way and dwell on it superficially. Now I see our lances are but straws, Our strength as weak, our weakness past compare.
(Taming of the Shrew V. ii. ) In All's Well, no male character submits to the assault of the tender passion, except in gross forms. Bertram resists its approach, and treats it with scorn. Helena's love is strong and faithful, but folly and weakness attend it.

To His Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvel () In the product of a love beyond compare, Our playful, little, special heir. 02 . In this essay, I will be comparing the poems; 'Our Love Now', 'Rapunzskiltskin,' 'To His Coy Mistress' and 'The Beggar Woman.' I will look into conflict and power between men and women and how it is revealed.
The first poem I will look at is 'The Beggar Woman,' by William King. This poem is about a gentleman in seventeenth century Britain.5/5(1).
Our angel, in a stranger’s form, Or woman’s pleading eyes; Or only a flashing sunbeam In at the window-pane; like a beggar’s child; Even in the hot pursuit of the best aims And prizes of ambition, checks its hand, Now Love and Pride, alas!
