"All is well!" got here the reaction from the sentry on the guard-house,
while the pointy click on of his piece as he introduced it to his shoulder and
the heavy tread of his taking flight footsteps have been all that used to be heard to

It was once a depressing, dreary, foggy evening. The heavy surroundings appeared laden
with nice plenty of fleeting vapor, and the walks of the put up and the
ground surrounding them have been as rainy as though a heavy bathe had simply spent
its force.

Such was once the Presidio of San Francisco, California, an army put up of
the usa govt, at the evening of November seventeenth, 1887. The
lights of the garrison made little impact upon that thick and saturated
atmosphere; but the little that they did make purely appeared to upload more
to the intensity of the encircling gloom.
