The Crusade of the Excelsior

by Bret Harte

Excerpt: . . . CHAPTER XI. THE CAPTAIN FOLLOWS HIS SHIP. When Padre Esteban had finished reading the document he laid it down and fixed his eyes on the young man. Hurlstone met his look with a glance of impatient disdain. "What have you to say to this?" asked the ecclesiastic, a little impressed by his manner. "That as far as it concerns myself it is a farrago of absurdity. If I were the person described there, why should I have sought you with what you call a lie of 'sentimental passion, ' when I could have claimed protection openly with my SISTER PATRIOT," he added, with a bitter laugh. "Because you did not know THEN the sympathy of the people nor the decision of the Council," said the priest. "But I know it NOW, and I refuse to accept it. " "You refuse

A First Family of Tasajara

by Bret Harte

Classic western novel. "It blows," said Joe Wingate. As if to accent the words of the speaker a heavy gust of wind at that moment shook the long light wooden structure which served as the general store of Sidon settlement, in Contra Costa. <P> <P> Even after it had passed a prolonged whistle came through the keyhole, sides, and openings of the closed glass front doors, that served equally for windows, and filled the canvas ceiling which hid the roof above like a bellying sail. A wave of enthusiastic emotion seemed to be communicated to a line of straw hats and sou-westers suspended from a cross-beam, and swung them with every appearance of festive rejoicing, while a few dusters, overcoats, and "hickory" shirts hanging on the side walls exhibited such marked though idiotic animation that it had the effect of a satirical comment on the lazy, purposeless figures of the four living inmates of the store.
