The Agony Column

Still finishing up some dissertation business, but I had to pop in here to share this: a printed collection of The Agony Column of the Times, 1800-1870, from 1881. These are amazing — half are written in code, and the other half are just mysterious and strange. Highly recommended if you want entertainment or inspiration for historical fiction.

This e-text is made available by the California Digital Library, which has a browseable and searchable index.
