Contents:
Just short of eternity
The lame and the halt
The promised land
And bid the sickness cease
Little brown brother
Washing up the orient
The black death
Eat, drink, and be merry
Water, water, everywhere
Not with beat of drum
For their own good
The heavenly flower
Alas and a lack
The house of pain
Prisoners of hope
Dividends from philanthropy
A drummer of ideas
Much have I traveled
Snakes in Eden
The white man's last refuge
Parasites lost and parasites regained
Fish stories
A great little people
Picking up broken threads
An ounce of prevention
And make persuasion do the work of fear
Hustling the east
Pearl of great price
pilgrim's progress
Grant but memory.
