[A doctor fails in a crucial operation and has only himself to blame. Could the woman he loves forgive him?]
The Vision of Desire:
Vision of Desire Anne restored love from the ashes of disillusion.
Begins: "... It's no use pretending any longer. I can't marry you, I don't suppose you will ever understand or forgive me. No man would. But try to believe that I haven't come to this decision hurriedly or without thinking. I seem to have done nothing but think, lately! "I want you to forget last night, Eliot. We were both a little mad, and there was moonlight and the scent of roses.... But it's good-bye, all the same--it must be. Please don't try to see, me again. It could do no good and would only hurt us both." Very deliberately the man read this letter through a second time. At first reading it had seemed to him incredible, a hallucination. It gave him a queer feeling of unreality--it was all so impossible, so wildly improbable! "I want you to forget last night."_ Last night! When the woman who had written those cool words of dismissal had lain in his arms, exquisite in her passionate surrender. His mouth set itself grimly. Whatever came next, whatever the future might hold, he knew that neither of them would be able to forget. There are some things that cannot be forgotten, and the moment when a man and woman first give their love utterance in words is one of them.

|Anna J. Hardwicke Pennybacker
(1861-1938). Anna Pennybacker, clubwoman, woman suffrageqv advocate, author,
and lecturer, daughter of John Benjamin and Martha (Dews) Hardwicke, was
born on May 7, 1861, in Petersburg, Virginia. As a high school student
she substituted the unexplained initial J for her second given name, McLaughlin.
She graduated from the first class of Sam Houston Normal School in Huntsville,
continued her education in Europe, and subsequently taught grammar and
high school for fourteen years, including some sessions at the Chautauqua
Summer Assembly. In 1884 she married native Texan Percy V. Pennybacker
(who died in 1889); they had three children who reached adulthood. Mrs.
Pennybacker wrote and published A New History of Texas in
1888, and the textbook was a staple of Texas classrooms for forty years.
Active since 1892 in women's clubs, Mrs. Pennybacker founded one of the
first in Texas, the Tyler Woman's Club, in 1894. In 1901 she presided over
the Austin American History Club. She went on to serve as president of
the Texas Federation of Women's Clubsqv from 1901 to 1903, a position in
which she raised $3,500 for women's scholarships at the University of Texas
and helped persuade the legislature to fund a women's dormitory there.
Additionally, under her leadership the federation began a traveling library
and art collection that resulted in the establishment of many permanent
libraries in Texas. Mrs. Pennybacker was treasurer of the General Federation
of Women's Clubs from 1904 to 1906 and auditor from 1906 to 1908. She chaired
the endowment committee of the same organization in 1911-12 and finally
served two terms as president of the federation (1912-16). She was chairman
of the Child Welfare Committee of the League of Women Voters in 1920, and
of the American Citizenship Department of the General Federation of Women's
Clubs from 1920 to 1924. She was a trustee of the Leslie Woman's Suffrage
Committee as early as 1917. She was a principal influence behind the Chautauqua,
New York, Women's Club, and was its president from 1917 to 1938. She staved
off bankruptcy at Chautauqua in 1935 by persuading John D. Rockefeller,
Jr., to match Chautauqua's fund drive with a $15,185 contribution. In 1936
she also got President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to speak at the Chautauqua
Institute's summer camp, thus helping to raise another $13,000.
Mrs. Pennybacker was an associate member of the Democratic National Committee (1919-1920) and through her work with the Democrats met Eleanor Roosevelt in 1924. Their fourteen-year friendship was based on mutual interests in the advancement of women, world peace, and the Democratic party. As an unofficial political analyst for the Roosevelt campaigns, Anna Pennybacker reported to campaign officials the political leanings of many prominent southwesterners. During World War Iqv she was active in the Food Administration of Texas and in 1934 on the Texas Centennialqv Commission. In 1937 she became the first woman in the history of Houston to give the commencement speech to the city's combined high schools. She traveled the country lecturing on topics such as the status of women and immigrants, Near East relief, the activities of the World Court and the League of Nations (in which she participated as a special correspondent in 1925, 1926, 1927, 1929, and 1931), and her frequent visits to the White House. She was an Episcopalian. At the time of her death in Austin, on February 4, 1938, Mrs. Pennybacker was highly regarded nationwide for her social conscience and reforms.

|Richard The Brazen
The novel was made into a motion picture in 1917: http://www.stanford.edu/~gdegroat/AJ/reviews/rtb.htm
Five-Part Drama by Cyrus T. Brady and Edward Peple. Featuring Alice Joyce and Harry Morey. Produced by Vitagraph Under the Direction of Perry N. Vekroff. "Richard the Brazen" is the romance of a modern knight who has all the flourish and daring of the knights of old, although he happened to be born in Texas in the twentieth century. While traveling with his chum, an English peer, an accident forces him to assume his friend's title, valet and monocle and leads to a meeting with a girl whom he has worshiped from afar in England. He is obliged to court her under false pretenses and the complications growing out of this false situation culminate in a stirring fight with a burglar in which the true state of affairs is revealed and Richard restored to his rightful title as scion of a Texas family. Much of the action is pure comedy and for the most part very amusing although a few scenes seem unnecessarily dragged out for the obvious purpose of padding. The story is staged against a background of a fine old family estate with unlimited romantic spots for the sentimental scenes in the action. Alice Joyce as the bewitching American girl and Harry Morey as the Texan (alias His Lordship) showed a spontaneous appreciation of the humor in their respective roles.

|Kit Carson's Own Story of His Life As Dictated to Col. & Mrs.
D. C. Peters by Kit Carson
The famous Taos scout Kit Carson used the experience he gained trapping in the Rocky Mountains to become a guide for General Stephen Watts Kearney as well as John Fremont, who saved his life. Carson describes his travels and adventures throughout the southwest and depicts his exploits with Indians and Mexicans. Carson's vivid account is a compelling example of both the fearlessness and the ruthlessness that typified many a man of his era. You might find yourself occasionally rooting for the other side while reading this decidedly "unvarnished prose."
Christopher Carson was apprenticed to a saddle-maker when
"being anxious to travel for the purpose of seeing different countries,
I concluded to join the first party for the Rocky Mountains." In 1826 he
ran away and joined a party westward bound, and spent many years scouting,
trapping, and hunting. He describes travelling in California in 1830: "We
found signs of trappers on the San Joaquin. We followed their trail and,
in a few days, overtook the party and found them to be of the Hudson Bay
Company. They were sixty men strong, commanded by Peter Ogden. We trapped
down the San Joaquin and its tributaries and found but little beaver, but
game plenty, elk, deer, and antelope in thousands." His encompassing knowledge
of the West led to his career as a guide and in the 1840's he was employed
by James Fremont. In typical abbreviated fashion Carson packs a several
month journey from (what is now) Utah to Wyoming to Washington into a single
paragraph: "We now took up Bear River till we got above the Lake. Then
crossed to and took up Malade, thence to Fort Hall where we met Fitzpatrick
and party. Fremont from here took his party and proceeded in advance. Fitzpatrick
keeping in rear some eight days march and we struck for the mouth of the
Columbia River. Arrived safe at the Dalles on the Columbia. Fremont took
four men and proceeded to Vancouver's to purchase provisions. I remained
in charge of camp." In 1854 the army was engaged in a campaign against
the Jicarilla Apache in New Mexico, and Carson acted as the principle guide
to Major Carleton: "It was evident that the Indians were making for the
Mosco Pass. The command marched through the Sangre de Cristo Pass...I discovered
a trail of three Indians in the pass, followed it till I came to the main
trail near the Huerfano...They had passed through the pass as predicted.
The main trail was now taken and followed six days when the Indians were
discovered. We marched over very rugged country, mountains, cañons,
ravines had to be passed, but we overtook the Indians at last. The Indians
were encamped in the east side of Fisher's Peak in the Raton Mountains.
The troops charged in on the village. The Indians ran. Some were killed
and about 40 head of horses were captured. They were followed until dark...
A 1935 pamphlet about Kit Carson is subtitled "Pathfinder, Patriot and
Humanitarian." By today's standards the world "humanitarian" would have
to go, and a more complex understanding of the man and his era emerge.
For instance, the laconic Carson barely mentions his Mexican and Indian
wives in the brief autobiography he dictated to Colonel Peters." You may
not get the entire story here, but you certainly experience the understated
yet forceful personality behind the icon. The dialogue in this book has
a ring of truth to it that is sometimes lacking in many of the books written
by scouts, trappers and cowboys.
This photograph is a very large scale reproduction of an original panoramic photograph of people gathered for the dedication of Kit Carson Park (On the Old Santa Fe Trail, 1822-1879) and unveiling of the Kit Carson Statue in Trinidad, Colorado, on June 1, 1913. Measuring 52 1/2" x 12 1/2", this classic historical image is printed on very heavyweight satin paper and displays like a work of art. Photographers, using special cameras and film, began taking panoramic photos in the 1850's with this technique reaching its greatest popularity in the early 1900's. These panoramas present towns, cities, universities, sporting events, disasters, modes of transportation, celebrations, the military, businesses, and people as they actually looked many years ago.

|Elizabeth Stuart Phelps
was a nineteenth century woman author whose best seller "Gates Ajar" passed
through twenty editions in one year. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps was a famous
nineteenth century author. She is best known for Gypsy Breyton, which became
a popular girls series and her best-selling novel, The Gates Ajar which
was published in 1868. Elizabeth was born with the given name of
Mary Gray Phelps in 1844 at Boston, Massachusetts. Being the daughter of
Austin Phelps and Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, she comes from very good parentage.
Her father was at one time pastor of Pine Street Congregational Church
Boston and became Professor of Sacred Rhetoric at Andover Theological Seminary.
He is also known for his little book, The Still Hour. Her mother was also
a noted author. In fact, her mother was one of the earliest writers to
create a series for girls. Perhaps her most noted work was the Kitty Brown
series for girls, but she also wrote such titles as the popular The Sunny
Side and The Country Ministers Wife. At the age of four, Mary moved with
her family from Boston to Andover. Here she grew up in the midst of strong
intellectual and spiritual influences. She received an excellent education
which fitter her for the life of an author and her religious background
undoubtedly helped shape her work.
Mary had two brothers, Moses, born in 1849, and Amos, born in 1852. Only a few months after the birth of Amos, Marys mother Elizabeth died from the recurrence of an earlier illness. When Marys mother died, Mary took the name of her mother in full. She was from that time on known as Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, perpetuating her mothers name and work in her own writings. Elizabeths was not a rigid and cold intellectuality. Her imagination was vivid and she had a warm heart. Mary kept in close touch with the great movements of the times and engaged in them. She was active in many causes, including a variety of charities, temperance work, and reform work. Her work in these areas kept her heart warmly in sympathy with the struggling masses in society. At one point, the life of factory girls attracted her attention. She studied the conditions first hand and sought to be of help in improving their circumstances. She wrote a book, A Silent Partner as a result of her observation and efforts on their behalf.
She worked toward abolition and temperance and once slavery was abolished, Elizabeth turned her thoughts and labors toward the betterment of womans condition. Much of her writing was now concerned with social issues and women's rights. She saw womens rights as the next great national and world-wide movement. She believed in a larger, sweeter, purer womanhood and so wrote with a purpose. She became author of a popular girl series, Gypsy Berynton, and included in her other works are: Up Hill, Avis, Hedged In, The Trotty Book, Old Maids Paradise, and perhaps her most famous, Gates Ajar, which passed through twenty editions in one year. Gates Ajar was written in 1868, offering a comforting view of the afterlife to women who had lost loved ones during the Civil War.
In 1888, Elizabeth was married.
She became the wife of Reverend Herbert D. Ward. They collaborated on three
Biblical Romances and in 1896 she wrote her autobiography, Chapters From
a Life. She died on January 28, 1911.

Possible Reference: Pompeii: 1910: London: A&C Black ~ Painted by Alberto Pisa, described by W M Mackenzie.
WILLIAM GELL (1777-1836), English classical archaeologist, was
born at Hopton in Derbyshire. He was educated at Jesus College, Cambridge,
and subsequently elected a fellow of Emmanuel College (B.A. 1798, M.A.
1804). About z8oo he was sent on a diplomatic mission to the lonian islands,
and on his return in 1803 lie was knighted. He went with Princess (afterwards
Queen) Caroline to Italy in 1814 as one of her chamberlains, and gave evidence
in her favor at the trial in 1820 (see G. P. Clerici, A Queen of Indiscre~ions,
Eng. trans., London, 1907). He died at Naples on the 4th of February 1836.
His numerous drawings of classical ruins and localities, executed with
great detail and exactness, are preserved in the British Museum. Gell was
a thorough dilettante, fond of society and possessed of little real scholarship.
None the less his topographical works became recognized text-books at a
time when Greece and even Italy were but superficially known to English
travellers. He was a fellow of the Royal Society and the Society of Antiquaries,
and a member of the Institute of France and the Berlin Academy.
His best-known work is Pompeiana; the Topography, Edifices and, Ornaments of Pompeii (1817-1832), in the first part of which he was assisted by J. P. Gandy. It was followed in 1834 by the Topography of Ro,ne and its Vicinity (new ed. by E. H. Bunbury, 1896). He wrote also Topography of Troy and its Vicinity (1804); Geography and A ntiquities of Ithaca (1807); Itinerary of Greece, with a Commentary on Pausanias and Strabo (1810, enlarged ed. 1827); Itinerary of the Morea (1Sf 6; republished as Narrative of a Journey in the Morea, 1823). All these works have been superseded by later publications.
