eople. Articles like those of the Times are attributed to the want of sympathy and of sweetness of disposition in the English nature, and the whole English people gets the blame of them. And deservedly; for from some such ground of want of sympathy and sweetness in the English nature, do articles like those of the Times come, and to some such ground do they make appeal. The sympathetic and social virtues of the French nature, on the other hand, actually repair the breaches made by oppressive deeds of the Government, and create, among populations joined with France as the Welsh and Irish are joined with England, a sense of liking and attachment towards the French people.

Much of the included literature is pedantic and amateurish--'Ode to Red Auerbach' by Tom Heinson, 'Parque Floor Sonnets' by K.C. Jones, 'Ace McFale Wins the Day!' by Kevin McHale, being three examples you may wish to avoid.
