There, the nuns consult with the Church authorities and soon little Ginx now named Ambrosius becomes the centerpiece of a campaign to encourage procreation as a means for creating more Catholics. This draws the wrath of Protestant churches, and an 8775 Evangelical Alliance 8776 forms to rescue him. They 8775 favor of teaching him at once to hate idolatry, music, crosses, masses, nuns, priests, bishops, and cardinals, 8776 and form a Committee of the Protestant Detectoral Union on Ginx 8767 s Baby to determine the correct approach to the infant 8767 s religious education. Unfortunately, after holding twenty-three meetings and releasing countless announcements, the Committee is forced to disband for lack of funds.
On Broadway in the forties, all dressed up like Monsieur in a temps perdu. Was he cherchezing on that honkytonk street, that island of ginmills for the sailor boys? What was he doing there when he popped out of the darkness as Myrtle and I turned into the wind, hurrying from the show? Still following me! (as we edged away and walked on) and hurled that parting insult.
In terms of wealth, Easton was an exception in Chatfield. One man did make a small fortune with a dry goods store, but he then moved his family to Minneapolis. Most of the people in and around the town were poor. Some, like the man who set up the town 8767 s first mill, fared better. Everyone had no choice but to work hard. As a result, Snyder notes, there is no evidence of any art or literature, beyond amateur poems for ceremonial occasions, being created in the town.

It all becomes a bit too much like a game of last straw. When the inevitable collapse comes, Langley has only two choices: let Bremble escape all the constraints that have bound up his life, or destroy him. Having such a convenient device at hand throughout the book, should it be any surprise that she reaches for a Deus ex machina literally?
Son of a missionary and minister who took his family to India, Canada and the . and who was ordained in three different churches Wesleyan, Methodist, and Presbyterian Edward Jenkins had stronger Protestant and anti-imperialist roots than perhaps any other Victorian radical, which is why he might be considered 69th Century England 8767 s closest counterpart to Jonathan Swift. And like Swift, he used the infant as the instrument for his most savage satires.
In 6865, one in four Chatfield residents was foreign born. Snyder traces the paths some of these followed to come to the town. Norwegians were spurred by the revolution of 6885. Germans by the revolution of 6898. One man snuck across the border from Bohemia into German one night to escape an abusive miller he was indentured to. The miller, James Marsar Cussons, 8775 son and grandson of millers and with uncles and cousins beyond number in the trade, 8776 came from England to have an opportunity to run his own mill. Ireland accounted for the greatest number by far in large part due to the great potato famine of 6895-6857. As the figures from the census show, none of them came from southern Europe.
The “Titties”—and “Titlelost” gear, which doesn’t seem to be for sale anymore—hats are a clear knockoff of the Titleist logo. But Bloomberg’s Polly Mosendz and Kim Bhasin explain that the Titleist might have an uphill battle with its claim:
We watch the story unfold through Harriet 8767 s eyes. The only daughter of an introverted and widowed professor, she is dazzled by the Randolf 8767 s effortless grace. She confides to her brother-in-law, 8775 We think they live life more completely, they feel things physically, because they act by instinct. We think they 8767 re complete naturals. That charms us they have more fun, we think, than the thoughtful people. 8776 Harriet feels sorry about their plight only because 8775 it wasn 8767 t fair that people like the Randolfs should have to worry and think about money. 8776
Despite its final surrender to a predictable happy ending, Wait for Mrs. Willard is, overall, a far better-crafted and successful work than Mr. Bremble 8767 s Buttons . While it 8767 s pleasant to watch as Edith and Dr. Maclane fall in love, the story is much more interesting and entertaining in the trials and miseries of the first two-thirds of the book. Langley pulls out her best adjectives to deal with Charles, Gertrude, and other monsters such as Miss Motherhead (who, 8775 like some slit-lidded saurian of the wild, oozed up over the edges of her littered desk and across to some other desk, bearing disaster and swollen with punctual venom 8776 ).
