Daniel Defoe led an exhilarating and certainly precarious existence. A provocative pamphleteer and journalist, a secret agent and double agent, a progressive and a dreamer, he was once variously hunted via mobs with murderous cause and taken care of as a star by way of the main robust leaders of the rustic. Imprisoned again and again, pilloried and reviled by way of his enemies, via all of it he controlled to provide the most major literature of the eighteenth century.
This biography presents a flexible perception into the existence, paintings, and regarded Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965).

I told her that Sadie could do much heavier work than I could. (I really was just a wee slip of a girl. ) But Mrs. Rodd wouldn't hear of taking Sadie. She wanted me. She promised my duties wouldn't be too hard. She had a cook and other staff for the heavy work, and all I would have to do would be the pastry and some light upstairs work and laundry.
