The following income opportunity is one you may be interested in
looking at. It can be started with VERY MINIMAL outlay and the income
return is TREMENDOUS.
You are about to make at least 50,000$ - in less than 90 days! Be
sure to read the following at least twice.
The following information is something I almost let slip through my
fingers. Fortunately, sometime later I re-read every thing and gave
some thought and study to it.
My name is Christopher Erickson. Two years ago the corporation I
worked at for the past twelve years down-sized and my position was
eliminated. After unproductive job interviews, I decided to open my
own business. Over the past year, I incurred many unforseen
financial problems. I owed my family friends and creditors over
35,000$. The economy was taking a toll on my business and I just
couldn't seem to make end's meet. I had to refinance and borrow
against my home in order to support my family and struggling
business. I truly believe that it was wrong for me to be in debt
like this. AT THAT MOMENT something significant happened in my life
and I am writing to share my experience in hopes that this will
change your life FOREVER...FINANCIALLY!!! In mid December, I received
this document via e-mail. Six months prior to receiving this
document I had been sending away for information on various business
opportunities. All of the programs I received, in my opinion, were
not cost effective. They were either too difficult for me to
comprehend or the initial investment was too great for me to see if
it really worked or not. One claimed I'd make a million dollars in a
year. It didn't tell me I'd have to write a book to do it. But like
I was saying, in December of `95 I received this document. I didn't
send for it, or ask for it, they just got my name off of a mailing
list. Thank goodness for that!!! After reading it several times ,
just to make sure that I was reading correctly, I couldn't believe my
eyes!!! Here was a MONEY MAKING PHENOMENON. I could invest as much
as I wanted to without putting me further in debt. After I got a
pencil and paper and figured it out, I figured that I would at least
get my money back. After determining that the program is legal and
that it was NOT a chain letter, I decided WHY NOT?. Initially I sent
out 10,000 emails it only cost me about $15.00 my time online. The
great thing about email is that I didn't need any money for printing
to send out the document. Only the cost to fulfill my orders. I am
telling you like it is, I hope it doesn't turn you off, but I
promised myself that I would not "rip-off" anyone, no matter how much
money it cost me!
A good program to help do this is Ready Aim Fire, an email extracting
and mass mail program @http://microsyssolutions.com/raf/
another more advanced one can be found at:
In less than one week, I was starting to receive orders for Report
#1. By January 13th, i had received 26 orders for Report #1. When
you read the guarantee in the document, you will see that "You MUST
receive 15 to 20 orders for Report #1 within 2 weeks. If you don't
send out more programs until you do!" My first step in making
50,000$ in 20 to 90 days was done. By January 30th I had received
196 orders for Report #2. If you go back to the guarantee, "You must
receive 100 orders for report #2 within two weeks. If not send out
more programs until you do. Once you have 100 orders, the rest is
easy, relax you will make your 50,000$ goal." well I had 196 orders
for Report # 2 , 96 more than I needed. So I sat back and relaxed.
By march 19th of my mailing of 10,000 I had received 58,000$, with
more coming in every day. I paid off all of my debts and bought a
much needed new car. Please take time to read the attached program.
IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOREVER!! Remember it won't work if you
don't try it. This program does work but you must follow it EXACTLY!
Especially the rules of not trying to place your name in a different
place. You'll lose out on a lot of money. Report #2 explains this.
Always follow the guarantee, 15 to 20 orders for Report #1, and 100
orders for Report #2, and you will make 50,000$ or more in 20 to 90
days. I AM LIVING PROOF THAT IT WORKS!!! If you choose not to
participate in this program, I'm sorry. It really is a great
opportunity with little or no cost to you. If you choose to
participate, follow the program and you will be on your way to
financial security. If you are a fellow business owner and are in
financial trouble like I was, or want to start your own business,
consider this a sign. I DID!
PS do you have any idea what 11,700 $5 bills (58,000) look like piled
up on a kitchen table? IT'S AWESOME!
"THREW IT AWAY"
"I had received this program before. I threw it away, bu later
wondered if I shouldn't have given it a try. Of course, I had no
idea who to contact to get a copy, so I had to wait until I was
emailed another copy of the program. Eleven months passed, then it
came. I DIDN'T throw this one away. I made 41,000$ on the first

"NO FREE LUNCH"
" My late father always told, `remember Alan, there is no free lunch
in life. You get out of life what you put into it.' Through trial
and error and a slow somewhat frustrating start, I finally figured it
out. The program works very well. I just had to find the right
target group of people to email it to. So far this year I have made
63,000$ using this program. I know my dad would have been very proud

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE ORIGINATOR OF THIS PROGRAM
By the time you have read the enclosed information and looked over
the enclosed program and reports, you should have concluded that such
a program, and one that is legal, could not have been created by an
amateur. Let me tell you a little about myself. I had a profitable
business for ten tears. Then in 1979 my business began falling off.
I was doing the same things that were previously successful for me,
but it wasn't working. Finally I figured it out, it wasn't me, it
was the economy. Inflation and recession had replaced the stable
economy that had been with us since 1945. I don't have to tell you
what happened to the unemployment rate...because many of you know
from first hand experience. There were more failures and
bankruptcies than ever before. The middle class was vanishing. Those
who knew what they were doing invested wisely and moved up. Those
who did not, including those who never had any thing to save or
invest, were moving down into the ranks of the poor. As the saying
goes, "THE RICH GET RICHER AND THE POOR GET POORER." The traditional
methods of making money will never allow you to "move up" or "get
rich", inflation will see to that. You have just received information
that can give you financial freedom for the rest of your life,
with"NO RISK" and "JUST A LITTLE BIT OF EFFORT." You can make more
money in the next few months than you have ever imagined. I should
also point out that I will not see a penny of your money, nor any one
else who has provided a testimonial for this program. I have already
made over 4 MILLION dollars. I have retired from the program after
sending out over 16.000 programs. Now I have several offices wich
market this and several other programs here in the US and overseas.
By the spring, we wish to market the Internet by a partnership with
AOL. Follow the program EXACTLY AS INSTRUCTED. Do not change it in
any way. It works exceedingly well as it is now. Remember to email
every one that you can think of. One of the people you sent this to
may send out 50,000... and your name will be on every one of them!!
Remember though the more you send out, the more potential customers
you will reach. So my friend, I have given you the ideas ,
information, materials, and opportunity to become financially
independent. IT IS UP TO YOU NOW!
"THINK ABOUT IT"
Before you delete this program from your mailbox, as I almost did,
take a little time to read it and REALLY THINK ABOUT IT. Get a
pencil and figure out what could happen when YOU participate. Figure
out the worst possible response and no matter how you calculate it,
you will still make a lot of money! Definitely get back what you
invested. Any doubts you have will vanish when your first orders come
in. IT WORKS!

HERE'S HOW THIS AMAZING PROGRAM WILL MAKE YOU $$$$$$
Lets say that you decide to start small, just to see how it goes, and
we'll assume that you and all those involved send out 2,000 programs
each. Let's also assume that the mailing also receives a
.5%response. Using a good list the response could be much better.
Also many people will send out hundreds of thousands of programs
instead of 2,000. But continuing with this example , you send out
only 2,000 programs. With a .5% response, that is only 10 orders for
Report #1. Those 10 people respond by sending out 2,000 programs each
for a total of 20,000. Out of those .5%, 100 people respond and
order Report #2. Those 100 mail out 2,000 programs each for a total
of 200,000. The .5% response to that is 1,000 orders for Report #3.
Those 1,000 send out 2,000 programs each for a total of 2,000,000.
The .5% response to that is 10,000 orders for Report #4. That's
10,000 five dollar bills for you. CASH!!! Your total income in this
example is $50 + $500 + $5,000 + $50,000 for a total of $55,550!!!
REMEMBER FRIEND THIS IS ASSUMING THAT 1,990 OUT OF 2,000 PEOPLE YOU
MAIL TO WILL DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING... AND TRASH THIS PROGRAM! DARE
TO THINK FOR A MOMENT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF EVERYONE OR HALF SENT OUT
100,000 PROGRAMS INSTEAD OF ONLY 2,000. Believe me many people will
do that and more! By the way your cost to participate in this is
practically nothing. You obviously already have an Internet
connection and email is free!! Report #3 will show the best methods
for bulk emailing and purchasing email lists. THIS A LEGITIMATE,
LEGAL MONEY MAKING OPPORTUNITY. It does not require you to come in
contact people , do any hard work, and best of all you never have to
leave the house except to get the mail. If you believe that someday
you'll get that big break that you've been waiting for, THIS IS IT!!
Simply follow the instructions and your dream will come true. This
multi level email order marketing program works perfectly...100%
EVERY TIME. Email is the sales tool of the future. Take advantage
of this non-commercialized method of advertising NOW!! The longer
you wait the more people will be doing business through email. Get
your piece of the action!! IMPORTANT: You wont get a good response if
you use an old mailing list, so always request a FRESH, NEW list.
You will find out where to purchase the these lists when you order
the four 4 Reports.
ALWAYS PROVIDE SAME DAY SERVICE ON ALL ORDERS!!!
***Order each Report by Name and Number***
ALWAYS SEND A SELF ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE AND $5 CASH FOR EACH
ORDER REQUESTING THE SPECIFIC REPORT BY NAME AND NUMBER.

I am enjoying my fortune that I made by sending out this program.
You too, will be making money in 20 to 90 days, if you follow the
SIMPLE steps outlined in this mailing. To be financially independent
is to be FREE! Free to make financial decisions as never before. Go
into business, get into investments, retire or take a vacation. No
longer will a lack of money hold you back.
However, very few people reach financial independence,
because when opportunity knocks, they choose to ignore it.
It is much easier to say "no" than "yes", and this is the
question that you must answer. Will YOU ignore this
amazing opportunity or will you take advantage of it? If
you do nothing, you have indeed missed something and
nothing will change. Please re-read this material, this
is a special opportunity.
My method is simple. I sell thousands of people a product for $5
that costs me pennies to produce and email. I should also point out
that this program is legal and every one that participates WILL make
money. This is not a chain letter or a pyramid scam. At times you
have probably received chain letters, asking you to send money on
faith, but getting NOTHING in return, no product whatsoever! Not
only are chain letters illegal but the risk of someone breaking the
chain makes them quite unattractive. You are offering a legitimate
product to your people. After they purchase the product from you,
they reproduce more to resell. It's a simple free enterprise. As
you learned from the enclosed material the product is a series of
four FINANCIAL AND BUSINESS REPORTS. The information contained in
these Reports will not only help you in making your participation in
this program more rewarding, but will be useful to you in any other
business decision that you make in the years ahead. You are also
buying the rights to reprint all of the Reports, wich will be ordered
from you by those whom you mail this program to. The concise one and
two page Reports you will be buying can easily be reproduced at a
local copy center for a cost of about 3 cents a copy. Best wishes
with the program and Good Luck!
"IT WAS TRULY AMAZING"
"Not being the gambling type, it took me several weeks to make up my
mind to participate in this program. But conservative as I am, I
decided that the initial investment was so little that there was no
way that I could not get enough orders to at get my money back. BOY,
was I ever surprised to find my medium sized post office box crammed
with orders! I will make more money this year than any ten years of
my life before."
Mary Riceland, Lansing, MI
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Send for your four Reports immediately, so you will have them when
the orders start coming in. When you receive a $5 order, you MUST
send out the product/service to comply with US postal and lottery
laws. Title 18 sections 1302, and 1341 specifically state that ;"A
PRODUCT OR SERVICE MUST BE EXCHANGED FOR MONEY RECEIVED."
WHILE YOU WAIT FOR THE REPORTS TO ARRIVE:
1. Name your new company.
You can use your own name if you desire.
2. Get a PO box (preferred)
3. Edit the names and addresses on the program. You must remember,
your name and address go next to the report #1 and the
others all move down one, with the fourth one being bumped
off the list. 4. Obtain as many email addresses as possible to send
until you receive the information on mailing list company's in Report
#3. 5. Decide on the number of programs you intend to send out. The
more you send and the quicker you send them the more money you will
make. 6. After mailing the programs, get ready to fill the orders.
7. Copy the four Reports so that you are able to send them out as
soon as you receive an order. IMPORTANT: ALWAYS PROVIDE SAME DAY
SERVICE ON ALL ORDERS YOU RECEIVE! 8. Make certain the letter and
reports are neat and legible.
the check point which guarantees your success is simply this: you
must receive 15 to 20 orders for Report #1. This is a must!!! If
you don't within two weeks, email out more programs until you do.
Then a couple of weeks later you should receive at least 100 orders
for Report #2, if you don't, send out more programs until you do.
Once you have received 100 or more orders for Report #2, (take a deep
breath)you can sit back and relax, because you are going to make at
least 50,000$. Mathematically it is a proven guarantee. Of those who
have participated in the program and reached the above GUARANTEES-ALL
have reached their 50,000$ goal. Also, remember
every time your name is moved down the list you are in front of a
different Report, so you can keep track of your program by knowing
what people are ordering from you. IT'S THAT EASY, REALLY, IT IS!!!!!!
Remember: "HE WHO DARES NOTHING NEED NOT HOPE FOR ANYTHING"
"INVEST A LITTLE TIME, ENERGY, AND MONEY NOW OR SEARCH FOR IT FOR THE
REST OF YOUR LIFE."

when i shot off those brief musings about the etchings i wasn't wondering
where i could find them (but thanks for the bon voyage), i've seen them, but
more about the ontology of written text verses images
with regards to artist/poet blake, is more ascendancy still given to the
word?--way past the point of difficulty in reproduction--but please don't miss
understand me, i know that there is a profound difference between the sensual
experience of the book and reading via the computer screen, i guess i was just
thinking about what are those differences?
is it something that is "hard wired" in us or will there be fundamental
changes when there are four or five generations of adults whose primary
experience with text has been though the screen? i personally think there
will, i think my love of blake's book as object has a lot to do with what i
like to call the cuddle factor--my sensory memories; the texture of the thin
crisp paper, the peculiar smell, the way the eye scans the page intertwined
with the mental "wow" of discovery
sorry this didn't have much to do with the anything specific in blake's text,
i won't post again until i have something to say about that
and thanks Nelson for the Songs site !!!

For what it is worth, the catalogue of the exhibition includes, in its
introduction, a detailed account of Paul Mellon's assembling of his
collection, and acknowledges that a few of the items in the exhibit
are not from Mellon's own collection, but are drawn from the general
Yale holdings. As befits an exhibition catalogue, this publication supplies
an accounting of the provenance of each item in the exhibition as well as
the appreciative description of Mellon's beneficence.

My name is R. William Scranton. I like Blake.
I'm new, so I'm gonna get my stupid question out of the way right now:
You all saw "Dead Man," Jim Jarmusch's latest film, right? Well, if
you didn't, it's got some William Blake stuff in it, and it's the best movie
I saw in 1996, so you should rent it.
Now, a more serious question--
One of Blake's poems that struck me the most was "The Chimney Sweep."
If I remember correctly, there's more than poem by that title-- I mean the
one about little Tommy Dacre who has to have his head shaved. Can any of
you Blake scholars (which I am not, I'm just an appreciator) offer some
enlightenment on this poem? I'm confused by the part where all of a sudden
everyone -poof- winds up in heaven. Any help you could offer would be nice.

Subject: Re: Frontispiece of "Europe" Again
Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII
The recent exchange about the Europe frontispiece was interesting and
helpful. The most striking version I have seen was hanging on the wall
at George Goyder's house in Long Melford when I visited him a few years back.
Its background was black and its sun blood red. I will check the Lister book
because from Jennifer's post it sounds as though the Goyder print resembles
the one Blake made for Tatham. Could it be a copy?
That leads me to two questions:
1) George Goyder believed his print was executed by Blake. He
said, however, that Bob Essick, when he saw it, thought it was a copy. I
wonder if anyone has evidence or could point me to evidence either way.
I have not seen any printed references to the Goyder print, perhaps
for good reason. Bob Essick or Jerry Bentley would be the best people
to respond on this point, but they seem not to be on the list. It may
be also that the matter is a bit sensitive in the wake of George
Goyder's death in January. That leads to a related question:
2) Can someone point me to the most current source of printed
information about the various versions of this plate? Has there been
an article on it in recent years I have missed? (Dare I ask this question
after Mary Lynn's recent post?)
The Europe frontispiece may be the most widely known and
appreciated of all Blake's visual images. It seems to speak directly
to people of different religious backgrounds, and I suspect most see it
as portraying the Judaic-Christian God -- a kind and beneficient one --
creating the world. It's appeal is no wonder since it is a magnificent visual
conception, beautifully executed. It came to mind a couple weeks ago -- before
it entered Blake On-line -- at the great exhibit of Michelangelo drawings
from Windsor Castle currently at the Art Institute in Chicago.
The wide appeal of the frontispiece as a happy creation scene does not,
of course, relieve Blakeans from the responsibility of reflecting on what
the plate meant to Blake and how his thoughts about it evolved as he made
new prints and colored them. More posts on these points would be welcome.
