Excerpt from book: CHAPTER IV A VOYAGE TO INDIA ' Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."-Mark xvi. 15. "Can we, who;e souls are lighted With wisdom from on high, Can we to men benighted The lamp of life deny? Salvation! O Salvation! The joyful sound proclaim, Till each remotest nation lias learned Messiah's name." The voyage to India, when Mr. and Mrs. Beatty first went out, was very different from what it had been even a few years before, and from what it has become now. India was changing, and it is a country we are always looking to for rapid changes. When the Presbyterian Church sent out her first missionaries from Ireland to that far-away land, the undertaking was looked upon as a very self-denying one indeed. The long voyage of four, perhaps six or seven, months, sailing by the Cape of Good Hope-the uncertain time of landing in India, possibly at the worst season of the year-and the many discomforts, private tions, and risks which emigrants had to endure after landing-all these entailed a sacrifice that is now unknown. India was coming nearer. The overland route through Egypt by rail had been opened some years before the Beattys sailed, while the Peninsular and Oriental line of steam-ships was the only one between Southampton, Marseilles, and Alexandria, and on the eastern side between Suez and Bombay. There was no choice-either go P. and O, or take the long voyage in a sailing-ship round the Cape of Good Hope. The passage-money was a large figure, 89 each from Southampton. The journey can be accomplished now for about half that amount. The P. and O. Company knew how to cater to suit the tastes and requirements of the passengers to India of that time. The Anglo-Indian did not step down too suddenly from the luxuries of the old

Since 1996, Richard Brookhiser has devoted himself to recovering the Founding for modern Americans. The creators of our democracy had both the temptations and the shortcomings of all men, combined with the talents and idealism of the truly great. Among them, no Founding Father demonstrates the combination of temptations and talents quite so vividly as the least known of the greats, Gouverneur Morris. His story is one that should be known by every American - after all, he drafted the Constitution, and his hand lies behind many of its most important phrases. Yet he has been lost in the shadows of the Founders who became presidents and faces on our currency. As Brookhiser shows in this sparkling narrative, Morris's story is not only crucial to the Founding, it is also one of the most entertaining and instructive of all. Gouverneur Morris, more than Washington, Jefferson, or even Franklin, is the Founding Father whose story can most readily touch our hearts, and whose character is most sorely needed today. He was a witty, peg-legged ladies' man. He was an eyewitness to two revolutions (American and French) who joked with George Washington, shared a mistress with Talleyrand, and lost friends to the guillotine. In his spare time he gave New York City its street grid and New York State the Erie Canal. His keen mind and his light, sure touch helped make our Constitution the most enduring fundamental set of laws in the world. In his private life, he suited himself; pleased the ladies until, at age fifty-seven, he settled down with one lady (and pleased her); and lived the life of a gentleman, for whom grace and humanity were as important as birth. He kept his good humor through war, mobs, arson, death, and two accidents that burned the flesh from one of his arms and cut off one of his legs below the knee. Above all, he had the gift of a sunny disposition that allowed him to keep his head in any troubles. We have much to learn from him, and much pleasure to take in his

[.]notorious bribery, were considered no disqualifications even for the highest offices. Such men indeed were not only tolerated, but praised. In those days too, Hume, an avowed infidel, put forth his History, and obtained a pension. Sterne and Swift then wrote their talented, but obscene books; both of them were clergymen, but the public saw little inconsistency in their conduct. Fielding and Smollett were the popular authors, and the literary taste of high and low was suited by Roderick Random, Peregrine Pickle, Joseph Andrews, and Tom Jones. These authors were ingenious heathen philosophers, assuming the name of Christians, and forcibly paganizing Christianity for the sake of pleasing the world. Turning to Scotland, we find that the bold proclamation of the discriminating truths of the gospel which characterize the preaching of Knox,[.]".

A rare earths and uranium mine in South Africa's remote Northern Cape is beset by creeping incompetence and operational disaster. Five years after its startup, irate shareholders begin to ask embarrassing questions about the mine's cash drain and its inability to meet its orders for U3o8 uranium oxide. David Bradshaw is drafted in to stop the rot. He assembles his management team, experienced and respected men in the mining and commercial world. Against odds, the team converts the mine from polecat status to the jewel in the mining group's crown. Interplay among personalities unleashes rivalries that, combined with international concern over nuclear material, introduces a new mindset among board members inured to contending with immense obstacles rolled into their path. U3o8 proves no exception to the depths of travail and the heights of success-depending on whose agenda the unexpected fate of the mine suits.
