A chemist named Redlaw has lost his sister and feels terrible guilt and sorrow over the incident. Redlaw is a kind and giving person but appears to others to be 'a haunted man'; what haunts him is his specter of guilt. This ghost offers to remove his pain and suffering. The result is that Redlaw becomes indifferent and morose without care for others. His presence is enough to make others uncaring. Redlaw, hearing sweet music on Christmas morning, again meets with his haunter. All the evil he has done is reversed by Milly Swidgers, who leads Redlaw to appreciate his sorrow as a devise for forgiving the wrongs done to us by life. Understanding this, Redlaw forgives the loss of his sister and allays the ghost's curse

The prelude; or, Growth of a poet's mind by William Wordsworth ( Book )
1 edition published in 1850 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William Wordsworth's autobiographical masterpiece The Prelude, or, Growth of a Poet's Mind was written between 1798 and 1805. As Wordsworth himself appreciated, it was a thing unprecedented in literary history that a man should talk so much about himself. But his revolutionary work was not published ; it was merely prefatory to a projected magnum opus and just as he had revised whilst writing, so almost immediately he began to amend the thirteen-book Prelude. At the time of his death in April 1850 there were fourteen books, of which no fair, definitive copy existed: it fell to his executors to finalise the text which was published posthumously in July 1850 and which this edition accurately reproduces without editorial emendation. Twentieth-century editors of alternative versions have questioned the merits of many of Wordsworth's "improvements", but the 1850 text remains a literary landmark, the form in which arguably his greatest work was first known

Mountains and molehills; or, Recollections of a burnt journal by Frank Marryat ( Book )
1 edition published in 1855 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frank Marryat (1826-1855) left England for California via Panama with a manservant and three hunting dogs in 1850, hoping to find material for a book like his earlier Borneo. On his return to England in 1853, Marryat married and brought his bride back to California that same year. Yellow fever contracted on shipboard forced him to cut the trip short and return to England where he died two years later. Mountains and molehills (1855) is a sportsman-tourist's chronicle of California in the early 1850s: hunting, horse races, bear and bull fights. It also includes an Englishman's bemused comments on social life in San Francisco, Stockton, and the gold fields
