Notes of a War Correspondent

Description: 

The men in the crowd behind them were also grimly silent. They knew that whatever they might say would be twisted into a word of sympathy for the condemned man or a protest against the government.

The Log of the Jolly Polly

Description: 

The Log of the Jolly Polly is written by Richard Harding Davis. The whaling vessels moored to a nearby wharf, I inspected from hatches to keels, and by those on board was directed to a warehouse where were stored harpoons, whalebone, and wooden figure-heads.

A Question of Latitude

Description: 

A Question of Latitude is written by Richard Harding Davis. The standard of life to which Everett was accustomed was high.

My Buried Treasure

Description:

The only part that is not true is the name of the man with whom I searched for the treasure.

The Spy

Description: 

The Spy is written by Richard Harding Davis. The talk or the drink had elated him. His fish-like eyes bulged and shone. He cast a quick look about him. Except for ourselves, the smoking-room was empty. From below came the steady throb of the engines, and from outside the whisper of the waves and of the wind through the cordage. A barefooted sailor pattered by to the bridge.

Lion and the Unicorn

The lodger came up the street just at that moment, and stopped and looked up at the Lion and the Unicorn from the sidewalk, before he opened the door with his night-key. They heard him enter the room and feel on the mantel for his pipe, and a moment later he appeared at the Lion's window and leaned on the sill.
