Gaston Bachelard

"The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us. It is not the possession of our being. Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows."
Gaston Bachelard

Newspaper Articles

"About one o'clock this morning the premises of Mr. Wilkinson, jeweller, 106, Vyse Street, was discovered to be on fire. The engines of the various fire brigades were present soon after the alarm was given, and there being a plentiful supply water the fire was soon extinguished, but not before considerable damage had been done to the property. The stock of jewellery in the warehouse and shopping is nearly destroyed, and a great part of the furniture is damaged by removal and from the effects of the water. Mr. Wilkinson being in London, cannot say whether he is insured or not. The damage owing the valuable of the stock, will amount to several hundred pounds."
