Violating all decency

Violent and unforeseen vicissitudes
                          [vicissitudes = sudden or unexpected changes]

Vitiated by intolerance and shortsightedness
                 [vitiated = reduce the value; corrupt morally; debase]

Vivid even to oppressiveness

Voracious and insatiable appetite

Vulgar eagerness for place


Warnings too pregnant to be disregarded

Warped by personal pretensions and self-consequence

We may parenthetically note

We must profoundly revere it

Weigh the merits and demerits

Welcomed at first with skeptical contempt

Well-concerted and well-timed stratagems

Whirled into rapid and ceaseless motion

Wholesale friction and discontent

Wholly devoid of public interest

Widely divergent social traits

Wield an unequaled and paramount authority

Wiser counsels prevailed

Withal decidedly handsome

Written in indelible characters upon his heart


Yield to urgent representations


Zealous in the cause he affected to serve

[Pencilled into the flyleaf:  “A navy blue feeling where my heart used to be”]
