Mr Bloom, strolling towards Brunswick street, smiled. My missus has just got an. Reedy freckled soprano. Cheeseparing nose. Nice enough in its way: for a little ballad. No guts in it. You and me, don't you know: in the same boat. Softsoaping. Give you the needle that would. Can't he hear the difference? Think he's that way inclined a bit. Against my grain somehow. Thought that Belfast would fetch him. I hope that smallpox up there doesn't get worse. Suppose she wouldn't let herself be vaccinated again. Your wife and my wife.
Wonder is he pimping after me?

British Army Recruitment
“Until the end of the eighteenth century, strictly speaking, only” (Denman 208) Protestant Irishmen could enlist in the British Army. But, notes Terence Denman in his article “‘The Red Livery of Shame’: The Campaign Against Army Recruitment in Ireland, 1899-1914,” “there was clandestine recruitment of Irish Catholics” and by 1812, the enlistment of Irish Catholics in the British Army was common practice (Denman 208). Ireland independence movements such as the Young Ireland movement opposed recruitment of the Irish into the British Army. Their dissent can be found in publications in The Nation as early as 1842 (209). The Annual Report of the Inspector-General of Recruiting shows that by 1890, 11.6% of British army recruits were Irish (210). By the time the second Boer war broke out in 1899, the British knew they could depend on the Irish to make up a substantial amount of their recruits, and by 1900, the Irish made up 22.7 percent of the British militia. The role of Irish men in the British Army was controversial to say the least and engendered dissent not only from Irish nationalists, but Irish M.P.s as well who claimed “that Irish soldiers were atrociously used” by the British (215). Denman notes that the height of anti-recruitment campaigns were reached in 1905 led in part by the Gaelic League and the Gaelic Athletic Association (220).

Item, curate, couple of cookies for this child."yesMadeleine cookies are primarily made in the town of Commercy in France's Lorraine region. The origin story for the Madeleine is contested, but a New York Times article by Patricia Wells traces the history to either a lunch hosted by King Stanislas of Lorraine in 1775, a renowned pastry chef, Avice, or the wife of Louis VX and her cook named Madeleine. Wells describes the packaging as "handsome oval wooden boxes [that are] sold in specialty shops all over France." (

Royal Crown Derby traces its roots to the first china shop opened in Derby, England in 1750. By 1775, the exemplary craftsmanship of the china compelled King George III to allow the Derby shop to use the crown as part of its branding. As the company's website notes, "in 1890, Queen Victoria also gave Crown Derby her seal of approval not only by awarding the royal warrant, but also by granting the title 'The Royal Crown Derby Porcelain Company'" (

But the main lines of the modern pornographic tradition and its censorship can be traced back to sixteenth centruy Italy and seventeenth and eighteenth-century France and England" (Hunt 10). Lisa Sigel traces the etymology of pornography to the word pornographos which delinated writings about prostitutes and traces the mass dissemination of pornography to the rise of the printing press. She writes, "Renaissance pornography became so popular that the papacy explicityly outlawd recent erotic writings at the Council of Trent (1563), although classical texts remained exempt" (Sigel 8-9).

According to the Mountain Lumber Company, a company that purchased and preserves some of the orginal lumber of the vats used to brew Guiness, Guinness beer was founded in Dublin in 1759. By 1769, the company began exporting its porter to England where it became known as Guinness Stout. "By 1883, the St. James' Gate Guineess brewery was the largest in Ireland, and by the close of the century, the Guinness brewery was the largest in the world" (Mountain Lumber Company Website). (
