Handsome antique double bed, Newfane, $50

5 09 2016

Handsome antique bed frame in dark wood with medium-firm double mattress and box spring for sale. EXTREMELY comfortable, little used (kept for an uncle who visited briefly and rarely), but shows a few signs of age: the wood of header and footer is chipped in a couple of places, two of the feet are a little eaten away, and the mattress is rather faded. So $50 to anyone who will come and collect it.

Photos below; please contact me through FPF.

slippery slope

If once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination. Once begun upon this downward path, you never know where to stop. Many a man has dated his ruin from some murder or other that perhaps he thought little of at the time.

De Quincey

Surface meets surface. When our life ceases to be inward and private, conversation degenerates into mere gossip. … In proportion as our inward life fails, we go more constantly and desperately to the post-office. You many depend on it, that the poor fellow who walks away with the greatest number of letters, proud of his extensive correspondence, has not heard from himself this long while.
