For historical accuracy poor spelling and bad grammar (and American spellings) in these newspaper articles have been faithfully reproduced in the transcription. See the 'Downend Parish Magazine, August 1905' and 'Mother's Last Words' by Mary Sewell for further serialised Story's by Victorian authors. Also see the scanned images of some of the original newspaper articles; and newspaper articles by Fanny Fern 1811-1872, an American newspaper columnist.
