Nevertheless, she had.. (5) on a carriage this particular morning, for she had a gentleman to meet at the harbour. Both he and his luggage must be got up the harbour hill. It was... (6) that the luggage could not walk up on its own and from what she knew (7).. men, it was ten to one that her new lodger... (8) be as helpless as his luggage. And so, as the carriage had to go down the hill before it could come up again, Miss Dredger, with her sharp... (9) of logic, decided that, in order to (10) use of this fact, it would be as well to be called for at Clôs de Joi.

3 kingdom of the great white shark... (18) main aim of these trips is to improve people s understanding of an animal.. (19) evil reputation has become an excuse for killing it.
