Fragments of an Autobiography

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

I well remember the terrors of a certain night when the wind was howling and the rain was beating down in torrents over the arid plains of the Lüneburger Haide; between them they had blown or blotted out the flickering lights of a heavy, lumbering travelling carriage such as one used to hire in the so-called good old times.

Now we are led, protesting, up to a grubby urchin of five and are invited to w...

Free Joe and Other Georgian Sketches

Cate: Children's Novel  Author:novel 

 The name of Free Joe strikes humorously upon the ear of memory. It is impossible to say why, for he was the humblest, the simplest, and the most serious of all God\'s living creatures, sadly lacking in all those elements that suggest the humorous. It is certain, moreover, that in 1850 the sober-minded citizens of the little Georgian v...
