Our Hundred Days in Europe

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

I begin this record with the columnar, self-reliant capital letter to signify that there is no disguise in its egoisms.

One Basket

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel

Orley Farm

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 It is not true that a rose by any other name will smell as sweet. Were it true, I should call this story \"The Great Orley Farm Case.\" But who would ask for the ninth number of a serial work burthened with so very uncouth an appellation? Thence, and therefore,—Orley Farm.

Only An Irish Boy Andy Burke\'s Fortunes

Cate: Children's Novel  Author:novel 

 The speaker was a boy of fifteen, handsomely dressed, and, to judge from his air and tone, a person of considerable consequence, in his own opinion, at least.

Our Lady of the Pillar

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

Being in Lisbon in October last, I sauntered one evening into the Livraria Bertrand, a recognised meeting-place of men of letters in the Chiado, still the principal street of the Capital, and now known officially as the Rua Garrett, though, in practice, the greater poet has not displaced the lesser.
