The revival of Freemasonry in England, in 1717, carried along and emphasized historical and traditional incidents which long antedated records affecting the British Isles. A split from or an imitation of the Freemasons of 1830 to 1845, or an antagonism to them, resulted in the founding of a Lodge of Odd Fellows, in 1745, and remains to this day a mighty organization, but one which has betrayed the thumb-marks of Freemasonry on its pages. The Loyal Order of Orangemen, organized later in the eighteenth century, while entirely unlike Freemasonry as to objects and ritualistic material, is also built along lines borrowed from Masonic trestle boards. Bnt with Forestry a new departure was made. By 1813 Freemasonry was the only widespread, international secret society in the United Kingdom. It was growing rapidly, and had already become powerful, not only from the character of its membership, but from the fact that it had just healed a mighty schism of more than half a century's duration. The Odd Fellows, too, were relatively strong in number at that time, but more preferred by the people as distinct from the classes. That Order was even then giving evidence of its strength through the secession of a largo share of its members, who formed what has since become the main branch or stem of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Manchester Unity. The first evidence of the existence of a Court of Foresters from which a direct line of succession is obtained is dated 1813, and takes the form of a dispensation from No. 1 Court of Royal Foresters, held at Old Crown Inn, Kirkgate, Leeds, for the opening of No. 1 Court at the Shoulder of Mutton Inn, Knaresboro...

To save an innocent friend, soldier and spy Jim Chapel will risk his own life and reputation to stop a deadly conspiracy from threatening the country in this relentless, non-stop action adventure from the author of the acclaimed thrillers Chimera and The Hydra Protocol. Jim Chapel pledged his life to protect his country from its enemies. But now, the one-armed Special Forces soldier turned spy is on the wrong side of the law. The person he trusts most in the world, the brilliant hacker known only as Angel, is suspected of terrorism. When his boss calls for Angel’s arrest, Chapel—certain it’s a frame job—has only one option: to go rogue. To protect Angel—a woman he’s never actually met—Chapel must clear her name. But first he has to find her, before a deadly Marine sniper, a drone aircraft gone feral, and the entire intelligence community closes in. With the aid of old friends and his ex-lover Julia, the search to find who framed Angel leads Chapel deep into the dark and lethal underbelly of the covert intelligence world . . . to a conspiracy with deep roots that shocks even this hardened veteran—and a plan that will destroy the United States as we know it if it succeeds.

In this volume, first published in 1947, Pulitzer Prize winning author Van Wyck Brooks gives a superb recreation of a segment of American literary history, namely the period from approximately the 1840’s through to the 1890’s. Those were the days of Melville, Whitman, Mark Twain, Lanier, Bret Harte, Audubon, John Muir and a host of other major and minor writers. No other American critic quite possesses Brooks’ gift for making you see and feel and experience the life and times of these literary men and women. And the balanced critical evaluation that gives this book its statute is clothed in such vigorous and beautiful writing that the reader is unaware of the lifetime of research and study encompassed in this volume. Aside from the critical value, the narrative skill and the many beautiful prose passages, in The Times of Melville and Whitman Brooks gives the reader a vivid historical picture of what life was like in the last half of the nineteenth century. It is this ability to recreate the social background of the times that gives such richness to Brooks’ criticism. He has again made a major contribution to American letters with a book that is a real work of art—vigorous, balanced, erudite, and a pleasure to read.
