A. Milne. "Once a day and twice a week" Nellie - in a forgotten corner of England - steamed down the Cloud Cuckoo Valley to the sea,driven by Albert Funnel and Frederick Firedoor. but tiiere was constant gr umbling up and down the line because Nellie was seldom on time, so one day Frederick and Albert decided to leave home.

"Jack Fitzgerald delves deep into the political records of the Responsible Government era in Newfoundlandto reveal the widespread corruption and incompetence of Newfoundland polit icians. In just forty-five years, self-government was handled so irresponsibly England considered taking it away. In the decades that followed things deteriorated even more. A sad commentary detailing this entire era is the only one Prime Minister Sir Robert Bond preserved in his private papers. This was to assure future historians would have no reason to question his integrity. It was a banner day in Newfoundland history in 1949 when that whole sorry era was laid to rest." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1. Campaign Funds from Bootlegging; 2.
