I'm sorry I forgot to give the source file! As you had already posted, it is:
http://archive.org/details/organisationofth00whit

You will find a typo I could not help correcting, since it conveyed the exact opposite meaning of what was meant: "casual" is written instead of "causal". The word "causal" appears on the later essay compilation by the same author "The Aims of Education and Other Essays", unfortunately not yet in public domain.

Regards,
PP
Thanks, PP, for supplying the source information. Causal and casual . . . Well, you're quite right in following the "rule of common sense" and speaking the author's actual intention and not the typographer's mistakes! :) I do the same thing!

Hi Rapunzelina, Thanks so much for your lively contribution to volume 29! :) Our dedicated proof listener, Hugh, will be along shortly to PL; and I might just have Lewis Carroll for lunch today: less fattening, more enlightening than toasted cheese sandwiches . . .

Hi Ava,
Monday was fine! :) Sunday I was browsing a 4-vol. set of "American Women Writers, A Critical Reference Guide (1979)" that I had picked up at our local library's "withdrawn" sale. The library apparently thought it outdated, but it has lots of good stuff. Anyway, I came across a bio of Alice Mabel Bacon (1858-1918), saw she had lived in and had written books about Japan, & immediately thought of you; so I checked the Librivox catalog and saw we had Japanese Girls and Women , to which you contributed. I intend to listen. Which brings me to the next point, that Bacon has two other Japan oriented books, both available on archive.org, a book of letters (A Japanese Interior, 1893) and a book of stories (In the Land of the Gods, 1905). Both looked interesting.

Hi Hugh, no worry about the PLing, but (knowing how fast you generally are in responding) I was beginning to be worried about you!

Oh, Tricia this is great! :P Practical advice, no doubt, but I'd bet the "fallout" from the mentioned locale might well have been as many babies conceived as born . . .
