Gadsby

by Ernest Vincent Wright, Gadsby Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Gadsby book, Example in this ebook The entire manuscript of this story was written with the E type-bar of the typewriter tied down; thus making it impossible for that letter to be printed. This was done so that none of that vowel might slip in, accidentally; and many did try to do so! There is a great deal of information as to what Youth can do, if given a chance; and, though it starts out in somewhat of an impersonal vein, there is plenty of thrill, rollicking comedy, love, courtship, marriage, patriotism, sudden tragedy, a determined stand against liquor, and some amusing political aspirations in a small growing town. In writing such a story,—purposely avoiding all words containing the vowel E, there are a great many difficulties. The greatest of these is met in the past tense of verbs, almost all of which end with "—ed." Therefore substitutes must be found; and they are very few. This will cause, at times, a somewhat monotonous use of such words as "said;" for neither "replied," "answered" nor "asked" can be used. Another difficulty comes with the elimination of the common couplet "of course," and its very common connective, "consequently;" which will, unavoidably cause "bumpy spots." The numerals also cause plenty of trouble, for none between six and thirty are available. When introducing young ladies into the story, this is a real barrier; for what young woman wants to have it known that she is over thirty? And this restriction on numbers, of course taboos all mention of dates. Many abbreviations also must be avoided; the most common of all, "Mr." and "Mrs." being particularly troublesome; for those words, if read aloud, plainly indicate the E in their orthography. As the vowel E is used more than five times oftener than any other letter, this story was written, not through any attempt to attain literary merit, but due to a somewhat balky nature, caused by hearing it so constantly claimed that "it can't be done; for you cannot say anything at all without using E, and make smooth continuity, with perfectly grammatical construction—" so 'twas said. Many may think that I simply "drop" the E's, filling the gaps with apostrophes. A perusal of the book will show that this is not so. All words used are complete; are correctly spelled and properly used. This has been accomplished through the use of synonyms; and, by so twisting a sentence around as to avoid ambiguity. The book may prove a valuable aid to school children in English composition. People, as a rule, will not stop to realize what a task such an attempt actually is. As I wrote along, in long-hand at first, a whole army of little E's gathered around my desk, all eagerly expecting to be called upon. But gradually as they saw me writing on and on, without even noticing them, they grew uneasy; and, with excited whisperings amongst themselves, began hopping up and riding on my pen, looking down constantly for a chance to drop off into some word; for all the world like sea-birds perched, watching for a passing fish! But when they saw that I had covered 138 pages of typewriter size paper, they slid off onto the floor, walking sadly away, arm in arm; but shouting back: "You certainly must have a hodge-podge of a yarn there without Us! Why, man! We are in every story ever written, hundreds of thousands of times! This is the first time we ever were shut out!" Pronouns also caused trouble; for such words as he, she, they, them, theirs, her, herself, myself, himself, yourself, etc., could not be utilized. But a particularly annoying obstacle comes when, almost through a long paragraph you can find no words with which to continue that line of thought; hence, as in Solitaire, you are "stuck," and must go way back and start another; which, of course, must perfectly fit the preceding context.

Gadsby S Tavern

by Gretchen M. Bulova, Gadsby S Tavern Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Gadsby S Tavern book, Gadsby's Tavern was at the center of daily life in late-18th and early-19th-century Alexandria. Operated by John Gadsby from 1796 to 1808, the tavern served both local citizens and travelers on their way to the nation's new capital. Gadsby's was a venue for dancing assemblies, performances, and celebratory dinners. Among its most famous patrons were George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. By the early 20th century, the tavern buildings were in danger of being demolished. Saved from the wrecking ball in 1929 by American Legion Post 24, Gadsby's became the cornerstone of Alexandria's historic preservation movement. In 1972, the American Legion donated the site to the City of Alexandria. Following a full restoration, Gadsby's reopened as part of America's bicentennial celebration. Today, Gadsby's Tavern Museum is a dynamic historic house museum, interpreting history to more than 25,000 visitors a year.

The Girl From Gadsby S

Download The Girl From Gadsby S book, Nell Watkins doesn't appear to be the ordinary star-struck girl to the burly doorman barring her way to the dressing room of beautiful musical comedy star Melissa Hargreaves. 'Tell her,' Nell insists, 'I'm the girl from Gadsby's.' Earlier in the day, Melissa's petulant complaint to the management of Gadsby's famous fashion store led to Nell being promptly and unfairly dismissed. And now Nell wants Melissa to know just what her thoughtless words have resulted in. But unknown to Nell, Melissa is engaged to Tom Gadsby - with whom Nell is in love from afar. Conscience-stricken and distressed, Melissa uses her influence not only to get Nell her job back but in a more senior position, as buyer in the fashion department. Nell is consequently torn with conflicting emotions. She is thrilled with this opportunity to put into practice the innovative ideas she has to bring Gadsby's back into the forefront of fashion retailing, in direct opposition to Jonathan Gadsby, the stubborn owner of the store, and excited at the possibilities her friendship with the glamorous Melissa brings. But her new life also brings a loss - for Tom is totally under Melissa's spell, and even when she deceives him, he forgives her - time and time again. Yet, Melissa and Nell's friendship seems destined to survive against all the odds.
