The Swiss Presidential Guard

I found in this day The Swiss Templar Guard in order to protect this, and all future Presidents of the United States while they are in Europe supporting the causes of NATO.

The Rosamond family has been traced to the Rougmont family of Switzerland and members of the Rebleutenzuft Guild that is not connected to any armed militia, and is neutral. President Biden will have to present a case of Unity, and inform all American Citizens why it is vital were back Ukraine and support NATO. Some black citizens resent monies given to Ukraine, and believe this money should be used to help the poor in the U.S.

Unity will defeat the common enemy.

Joe Biden had his hands full when he walked out the White House to start his four-day swing through Europe. Two cell phones were stacked together in one hand; a pair of his signature aviator sunglasses in the other. Over the thumping rotors of the waiting Marine One helicopter, a reporter asked Biden if he’s concerned about Russia using chemical weapons in Ukraine. “I think it’s a real threat,” Biden said, turning toward the spinning blades of the chopper and putting the glasses on.

In an emotional address to the Swiss people on Saturday — which was livestreamed at a solidarity rally outside the Federal Palace in the capital, Bern — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for tougher sanctions on oligarchs and asked, “Why can’t we live like the Swiss?”

Why it matters: Switzerland is famously neutral, but not when it comes to the war in Ukraine.

Driving the news: Swiss President Ignazio Cassis spoke at the rally on Saturday, praising the Ukrainian people’s spirit of resistance but drawing a rebuke from the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP), which provides two of the Swiss government’s seven ministers.

  • “A demonstrating federal president is the last thing Switzerland needs,” the SVP said. One of the party’s leading figures has called for a referendum to ban sanctions to preserve Switzerland’s neutrality.

Yes, but: The Swiss population broadly supports the sanctions against Russia, and all three major newspapers published editorials over the weekend calling for additional steps, like ending Switzerland’s reliance on Russian gas.

  • Unlike during the 2015 migrant crisis, solidarity with Ukrainian refugees is also high.

During his speech, Zelensky specifically called on Swiss multinational Nestlé, the world’s largest food company, to end its business in Russia.

  • “We have stopped all imports and exports from Russia, except for vital products,” a spokesperson told Blick.
  • He also called on Swiss banks to freeze oligarchs’ funds and for Switzerland to expel Russian President Vladimir Putin’s supporters.

Worth noting: The Swiss Federal Department of Police and Justice has responded to media reports that Putin’s “secret wife” and their children might be hiding out in a luxury chalet in the Alps, saying it has “no indication of the presence of this person in Switzerland.”

E.E. Zunft zu Rebleuten2 – Im Zeichen des Wolfs (rebleutenzunft.ch)

The guild was founded in Basel between 1364 and 1366. It was integrated into the municipal guild system as a half or part guild with the gray cloths to form a “split guild” . In 1453, the council ordered the separation of the two half-guilds, with the Rebleute taking over the guild house “zur Glocke” on Freiestrasse that they had jointly acquired.

At that time, great importance was attached to viticulture in and outside of the city. In the Middle Ages, wine was one of the staple foods, like bread and meat. In the 15th and 16th centuries, the thriving city of Basel attracted many newcomers, including winegrowers from the neighboring vineyards and from eastern Switzerland.

Johann Rudolf Wettstein was accepted into the Rebleuten guild in 1610 together with his father, who had immigrated from the Zurich area at the time. In 1620 he became councilor to Rebleuten, in 1635 the council elected him chief guild master and ten years later mayor of the Freistand Basel. The culmination of his statesmanship was his posting to the Peace Congress in Münster and Osnabrück . The Swiss Confederation owes its independence from the German Reich to him. It was solemnly recognized by the great powers in the Westphalian peace treaty of 1648.

In the 17th century there was a lack of young people among the Rebleute. Representatives of other professions were accepted into the Rebleutenzuft: merchants, officers, scholars. In 1678 the last Rebmann was elected guild master. Without exception, his successors were members of the families involved in the municipal government. In 1798, the Confederation of States broke up in the wake of the French Revolution. The mayor and council transferred their functions and powers to the new National Assembly. This was the end of the political function of the Basel guilds. However, the compulsory guild was able to hold on for the time being. Anyone who wanted to practice a craft in Basel had to be a master craftsman and belong to the relevant guild. Only due to the revision of the Federal Constitutionunrestricted freedom of trade and commerce also achieved a breakthrough in Basel in 1874.

presenceTo edit

In addition to the vine workers, the following professions are referred to the guild: upholsterers, merchants, shepherds, typographers. The guild of Rebleuten maintains the traditions handed down. It is a community of Basel citizens committed to improving the quality of life for the residents of the city of Basel. The guild is politically and denominationally neutral. However, it is clearly committed to the principles of a free, democratic society. She maintains the sociability among the guild members and the hospitality with professionally related guilds in the city, in the rest of Switzerland and in the region. She wants to support the members of the guild in social, economic or health emergencies, maintain contact with them and enable them to actively participate in the guild’s activities.

It promotes an awareness of responsibility for the city of Basel. If possible, she tries to contribute to the maintenance of the local language, the «Baseldytsch». It owns a historical guild treasure and uses its proceeds for the benefit of the guild and non-profit, charitable purposes. It gives education grants for sons and daughters of guild members, support payments to needy widows of guild members and burial funds for deaths in families of guild members.

Every Dog Should Eat Fresh Food Not Burnt, Brown Balls.

AdThe Farmer’s Dog

The stakes are high for Biden’s trip. There are growing concerns inside the White House that Russia may escalate the war and cause massive civilian casualties in Kyiv or in the coastal city of Mariupol, which Russia has been shelling for weeks. The U.S. has pushed back against requests for North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries to enforce a no-fly zone in Ukraine over worries that such direct combat could escalate into a broader war. But experts warn that a Russian escalation inside Ukraine could change that calculus for Western allies.

In the meetings in Europe on March 24 and 25, Biden will discuss Moscow’s potential use of chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine, how countries should respond to possible Russian cyber attacks, and how to deal with recent Russian rhetoric on nuclear weapons. He’s attending an emergency summit at NATO headquarters in Belgium and meeting with leaders of G7 countries and the European Union. Before returning to the U.S., Biden will visit President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw, Poland, on the eastern edge of the NATO alliance. Poland, which shares a border with Ukraine and Russia’s ally Belarus, has borne the shockwaves of Russia’s month-long war, taking in 3 million refugees and becoming the main pathway of weapons moving through to bolster Ukrainian defenses.

On the trip, Biden will also be trying to get allies to make sure financial punishments they’ve already put in place continue to pinch the Russian economy. The sanctions on Russian industry and financial transactions won’t mean much if Russia finds ways around them. Biden wants to see European allies tasking investigators and prosecutors with robust sanctions enforcement actions. “What we would like to hear is that the resolve and unity we’ve seen for the past month will endure for as long as it takes,” Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters on March 23 aboard Air Force One on the way to Belgium.

But while Biden has largely kept NATO allies unified in their response so far, this trip will test the group’s resolve. There are disagreements among the U.S. and its allies on the extent of the current sanctions against Russia and the next steps. Finding ways to reduce Europe’s dependence on Russian oil and gas has been the subject of “intense back and forth” over the past fews days, Sullivan said, and is another “substantial topic of conversation” for Biden on the trip.

Biden banned U.S. purchases of Russian oil and gas on March 8. Germany and other European countries that rely more heavily on Russian energy imports have largely kept Russian fuel flowing. The Biden White House thinks Europe can do more to wean itself off from Russian energy. The U.S. wants Germany, for example, to go further in cutting off Russian energy purchases. White House officials have considered closing the U.S. banking system to electronic transfers paying for Russian energy but won’t take that harsh step without agreement from allies whose domestic energy supply is reliant on Russian gas and oil.

Germany, for its part, is looking for ways that the U.S. and other allies could ease the impact on the German economy if there are further reductions in the purchase of Russian energy. The U.S. has surged delivery of liquified natural gas to Europe in recent weeks, but European leaders want more assistance for investing in alternatives to Russian supplies. European countries also want to share the expense and effort of resettling refugees fleeing Ukraine. More than 10 million people have fled Ukraine in the fighting, and Europe is looking to the U.S. and other allies for ways to share the cost and impact of such a rapid mass migration.

Looming over Biden’s meetings is the question of how far China will go to prop up Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine and how allies should respond. So far, the White House has not seen evidence of China providing weapons or ammunition to Russia to help with the invasion, Sullivan said. But there’s increasing concern that China could take financial steps to blunt the longer-term impact of sanctions on the economy in Russia, a close trading partner. Biden wants to talk to allies to ensure “there isn’t systematic sanctions busting,” Sullivan said. “I don’t want to use the microphone to threaten, I just want to say this is something we are vigilant about.”

Putin’s aggression on NATO’s doorstep in Ukraine has clarified the alliance’s mission to protect Europe from invasion. Now, Biden wants to see NATO allies follow through on their commitments to boost military spending and deployment of troops and equipment in Eastern Europe. Military commanders from NATO countries are looking at what size troop deployments are needed over the next several months to protect Europe’s borders with Russia.

Given that Poland’s border with Ukraine is being used to resupply weapons from European countries to Ukrainian forces, Poland is one NATO ally currently in Russia’s crosshairs. Biden’s visit to the country at the end of his trip carries powerful symbolic weight for reaffirming the U.S. commitment to NATO and to Poland, says Steven Durlauf, a professor at University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy. “They’re on the firing line; If Russia goes crazy and actually crosses a NATO border, it’s going to be theirs,” he says. Biden clasping hands with Poland’s president in Warsaw at this moment, “is largely symbolic,” Durlauf adds, “but this is the time when symbols carry weight.”

The Wolfen Guild of Rosemondt

Posted on October 1, 2012 by Royal Rosamond Press

I have immortalized my family. Above are photos of the EE Zunft Rebleuten Guild of Basel whose emblem is a dancing wolf. Fremasonry has its roots in the guilds. Notice the cote of arms behind glass in top photo. William Morris said the sons of the House of Wolfen are best suited to tell the tale of their battle with the slave masters of Rome.

Jon Rosamond Wolferose

“Erhart de Rougemont who bought in 1495 “the house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the Freistrasse.’

Peter Rosemond had seen in print the letters from Erasmus to Gotschalk Rosemondt. He noticed that a seal used by a
Rosemont in Holland, bearing a jumping fox, was like an emblem he had noticed in a wall of the house Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle. This seal
dated back to 1430,

This James (or Jacob, for these names were once interchangeable) was the son of Hans Ulrich
Rosemond, born 1623, a weaver; who was a son of Hans, a weaver, born
1581; who was a son of Fred Rosemond, born 1552, a weaver, member of
town council and a local captain; who was the son of another Hans
whose date of birth is not known, but he too, was a weaver and became
a citizen of Basle in 1534. His father was Erhart de Rougemont who
bought in 1495 “the house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the
Freistrasse.’ Peter Rosemond further reported information from the
Records Office in Basle that “before Basle the family resided in
Holland up to 1338, and it is said they descended from the estate
Rosemont, near Belfort, in France, where also the village Rougemont
is found.” A family coat-of-arms was registered in Basle about 1537
when the first Hans became a resident there. A reproduction of this
coat-of-arms in the writer’s possession shows a weaver’s crook
conspicuously, and it will be remembered that in Ireland our people
were linen weavers and farmers, and that Edward, the elder, was a
weaver in this country. Peter Rosemond had seen in print the letters
from Erasmus to Gotschalk Rosemondt. He noticed that a seal used by a
Rosemont in Holland, bearing a jumping fox, was like an emblem he had
noticed in a wall of the house Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle. This seal
dated back to 1430, whereas the coat-of-arms above mentioned dates
from 1534, it seems. Peter Rosemond died September 22, 1930. This is
but a sketch of what he wrote.”

To Arms Ye Wolfens

I have failed to get the Mayor and City Council of Eugene and Springfield interested in the real connection between the Miller Brothers, the Pre-Raphaelites, William Morris, and J.R. Tolkien. This would be a boon for all of Lane County – and Oregon! I am not sure what the problem is, but, if I press The Mighty Proud & Ignorant’ they will try to hurt me, like the Kimites and Alleyites, who insist they own all the answers.

“No need to look anywhere else – buster! The days of your curiosity are over. so get back in your little cell, Old Man! Prophet – my ass!”

I think jealousy in involved, because this looks like Big Stuff, and, it is not being presented and exploited by Big People, thus the Wee Ones can own permission to get on board in a safe and puny way. I will pay a penalty for making them look – small! If I would just die, or, go away, then there tiny input will suffice. The feeding frenzy over Nothing, will go on. The ongoing homeless problem will define us. They are all powerless! Not I. I came up with a solution for one homeless person. I did my Civic Duty. Consider Gulliver’s Travels.

J.R. Tolkien was deeply influenced by William Morris’s The House of Wolfen. Morris was a Pre-Raphaelite and great friend of Dante Gabriel Rossetti whose last name is translated thus in French…..ROSAMONDE. I will be safely accused of self-grandizing by invoking this name that was popular amongst the Brotherhood. Rossetti painted a version of Fair Rosamond, and his friend, Swineburne wrote…..ROSAMUND QUEEN OF THE LOMBARDS.

I have been so busy running my little town newspaper, and being a real prophet out to thwart the Mad Man in The White House, that I have neglected the little essay Joaquin Miller wrote about his Dinner with Rossetti. I had not noticed the mention or the poem Evangeline written by Longfellow the friend of Nathaniel Hawthorne, who wrote about my ancestor, John Wilson, in The Scarlet Letter. This work, and the writing of Washington Irving inspired me to write ‘A Rose Among The Woodwose’ which is a continuation, a splicing, a Time Machine that takes up where Longfellow left off….the telling of the Great American Tale and Spirit…that the Mad Woodwose and Wood Master, Jaquin Miller took to England, at the suggestion of Ina Coolbrith, the head of the Oakland Library. Did she know Jack London?

Cease! I have written too much! The Candy-coated Consumer can only take so much. They want QUICK BITES of candy full of Stars. Many want Quick Jesus Candy from a Con Artist and Lunatic. They want A Hit and a Toke! They want to swallow The Ring, then, go for The Ten Minute Ringtone Crown.

Miller’s dinner with Rossetti preceded Tolkien’s discussions with his friend C.S. Lewis. This is my discovery that connects Lane County with Britain. This is an amazing cultural link that has to be ignored and rejected because  it makes me powerful.

THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks,
Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight,
Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic,
Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
Loud from its rocky caverns, the deep-voiced neighboring ocean
Speaks, and in accents disconsolate answers the wail of the forest.

This is the forest primeval; but where are the hearts that beneath it
Leaped like the roe, when he hears in the woodland the voice of the huntsman?
Where is the thatch-roofed village, the home of Acadian farmers,—
Men whose lives glided on like rivers that water the woodlands,
Darkened by shadows of earth, but reflecting an image of heaven?
Waste are those pleasant farms, and the farmers forever departed!
Scattered like dust and leaves, when the mighty blasts of October
Seize them, and whirl them aloft, and sprinkle them far o’er the ocean.
Naught but tradition remains of the beautiful village of Grand-Pré.

Ye who believe in affection that hopes, and endures, and is patient,
Ye who believe in the beauty and strength of woman’s devotion,
List to the mournful tradition still sung by the pines of the forest;
List to a Tale of Love in Acadie, home of the happy.[16][17][18]

To me a poem must be a picture,” I answered.
Proud I was when a great poet then said: “And it must be a picture–if a good poem so simple that you can understand it at a glance, eh? And see it and remember it as you would see and remember a sunset, eh?” “Aye,” answered the master, “I also demand that it shall be lofty in sentiment and sublime in expression. The only rule I have for measuring the merits of a written poem, is by the height of it. Why not be able to measure its altitude as you measure one of your sublime peaks of America?”

He looked at me as he spoke of America, and I was encouraged to answer:”Yes, I do not want to remember the words. But I do want it to remain with me a picture and become a part of my life. Take this one verse from Mr. Longfellow:
“And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares that infest the day
Shall fold their tents like the Arabs,
And as silently steal away.’”

“Good!” cried the fat cynic, who, I am sure, had never heard the couplet before, it was so sweet to him; “Good! There is a picture that will depart from no impressible clay. The silent night, the far sweet melody falling on the weary mind, the tawny picturesque Arabs stealing away m the darkness, the perfect peace, the stillness and the rest. It appeals to all the Ishmaelite in our natures, and all the time we see the tents gathered up and the silent children of the desert gliding away in the gloaming.”

A transplanted American, away down at the other end by a little man among bottles, said: “The poem of Evangeline is a succession of pictures. I never read Evangeline but once.” “It is a waste of time to look twice at a sunset,” said Rossetti, sotto voce, and the end man went on: “But i believe I can see every picture in that poem as distinctly as if I had been the unhappy Arcadian; for here the author has called in ail the elements that go to make up a perfect poem.”

“When the great epic of this new, solid Saxon tongue comes to be written,” said one who sat near and was dear to the master’s heart, “it will embrace all that this embraces: new and unnamed lands; ships on the sea; the still deep waters hidden away in a deep and voiceless continent; the fresh and fragrant wilderness; the curling smoke of the camp-fire; action, movement, journeys; the presence–the inspiring presence of woman; the ennobl- ing sentiment of love, devotion, and devotion to the death; faith, hope and charity,- and all in the open air.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_House_of_the_Wolfings

The House of the Wolfings is a romantically reconstructed portrait of the lives of the Germanic Gothic tribes, written in an archaic style and incorporating a large amount of poetry. Morris combines his own idealistic views with what was actually known at the time of his subjects’ folkways and language. He portrays them as simple and hardworking, galvanized into heroic action to defend their families and liberty by the attacks of imperial Rome.

Morris’s Goths inhabit an area called the Mark on a river in the forest of Mirkwood, divided into the Upper-mark, the Mid-mark and the Nether-mark. They worship their gods Odin and Tyr by sacrificing horses, and rely on seers who foretell the future and serve as psychic news-gatherers.

The men of the Mark choose two War Dukes to lead them against their enemies, one each from the House of the Wolfings and the House of the Laxings. The Wolfing war leader is Thiodolf, a man of mysterious and perhaps divine antecedents, whose ability to lead is threatened by his possession of a magnificent dwarf-made mail-shirt which, unknown to him, is cursed. He is supported by his lover the Wood Sun and their daughter the Hall Sun, who are related to the gods.

The Iron Crown of Lombardy (ItalianCorona Ferrea di LombardiaLatinCorona Ferrea Langobardiae) is both a reliquary and one of the oldest royal insignias of Christendom. It was made in the Early Middle Ages, consisting of a circlet of gold and jewels fitted around a central silver band, which tradition holds to be made of iron beaten out of a nail of the True Cross. The crown became one of the symbols of the Kingdom of the Lombards and later of the medieval Kingdom of Italy. It is kept in the Cathedral of Monza, near Milan.

Coolbrith, born the niece of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints founder Joseph Smith, left the Mormon community as a child to enter her teens in Los Angeles, California, where she began to publish poetry. She terminated a youthful failed marriage to make her home in San Francisco, and met writers Bret Harte and Charles Warren Stoddard with whom she formed the “Golden Gate Trinity” closely associated with the literary journal Overland Monthly. Her poetry received positive notice from critics and established poets such as Mark TwainAmbrose Bierce and Alfred Lord Tennyson. She held literary salons at her home in Russian Hill[3]—in this way she introduced new writers to publishers. Coolbrith befriended the poet Joaquin Miller and helped him gain global fame.

While Miller toured Europe and lived out their mutual dream of visiting Lord Byron’s tomb, Coolbrith was saddled with custody of his daughter and the care of members of her own family. As a result, she came to reside in Oakland and accepted the position of city librarian. Her poetry suffered as a result of her long work hours, but she mentored a generation of young readers including Jack London and Isadora Duncan. After she served for 19 years, Oakland’s library patrons called for reorganization, and Coolbrith was fired. She moved back to San Francisco and was invited by members of the Bohemian Club to be their librarian.[4]

Whiles in the early Winter eve
We pass amid the gathering night
Some homestead that we had to leave
Years past; and see its candles bright
Shine in the room beside the door
Where we were merry years agone
But now must never enter more,
As still the dark road drives us on.
E’en so the world of men may turn
At even of some hurried day
And see the ancient glimmer burn
Across the waste that hath no way;
Then with that faint light in its eyes
A while I bid it linger near
And nurse in wavering memories
The bitter-sweet of days that were.

CHAPTER I—THE DWELLINGS OF MID-MARK

The tale tells that in times long past there was a dwelling of men beside a great wood.  Before it lay a plain, not very great, but which was, as it were, an isle in the sea of woodland, since even when you stood on the flat ground, you could see trees everywhere in the offing, though as for hills, you could scarce say that there were any; only swellings-up of the earth here and there, like the upheavings of the water that one sees at whiles going on amidst the eddies of a swift but deep stream.

On either side, to right and left the tree-girdle reached out toward the blue distance, thick close and unsundered, save where it and the plain which it begirdled was cleft amidmost by a river about as wide as the Thames at Sheene when the flood-tide is at its highest, but so swift and full of eddies, that it gave token of mountains not so far distant, though they were hidden.  On each side moreover of the stream of this river was a wide space of stones, great and little, and in most places above this stony waste were banks of a few feet high, showing where the yearly winter flood was most commonly stayed.

You must know that this great clearing in the woodland was not a matter of haphazard; though the river had driven a road whereby men might fare on each side of its hurrying stream.  It was men who had made that Isle in the woodland.

For many generations the folk that now dwelt there had learned the craft of iron-founding, so that they had no lack of wares of iron and steel, whether they were tools of handicraft or weapons for hunting and for war.  It was the men of the Folk, who coming adown by the river-side had made that clearing.  The tale tells not whence they came, but belike from the dales of the distant mountains, and from dales and mountains and plains further aloof and yet further.

A Rose Among The Woodwoses

Copyright 2019

Chapter One

Roseflower

Lady Mary Wilson Webb, inherited the job of  keeping the fire lit below deck. All those who had gone before her, had failed. The fire tendered in a square iron tray, held together with rivets, then filled with sand, had become the altar of the Pilgrims. It, and the black pot hung on a trident, was watched most of the day by the lost souls packed under the creaking and leaking timbers. Moving about was almost impossible. Everyone was frozen in their place. But for the brave excursions above, met by some tempest, and cold sea spray, the wayfarers relieved themselves in a vile oaken bucket that was too close for comfort.  Bible’s were taken out from under pillows when a lady went to tithe the Oaken Monster as they called it. Reading verses aloud, was the polite thing to do.

Tiring of the gory and bloody Biblical tales, that increased the Cargo Dread, the men brought out their bawdy jokes that they had memorized and gathered since their school days. The women pretended they ne’er heard a one. But, that guarded secret was soon out. And, a new kind of boredom set in. It was dreadful. Ones farting was amplified in the silence. The women ran out of perfume. Everyone got to know what a women really smelled like, including the women! Everyone was grateful for the occasional flying fish that was thrown in the pot, to cook all day, like temple incense.

The men ran out of jokes. Nothing was ever going to be funny again. The art of Mary keeping the fire alive was the highlight of their existence. You could hear the beards growing. In the glow of the red coals, the women felt like roses among the Woodwoses.

Two weeks at sea and another three weeks to go. Something had to be done.

“I brought my father’s book on rhetoric with me. Does anyone know it? My kindred William Shakespeare read it and was quite impressed. I saw him perform at the Rose theatre, on several occasions. He and my father were friends. They used to go the Bearbait Theatre and sit among the Protestant Spies. There were lawyers of the Temple present. Thomas called them the Roman Senators. There were horrific scenes of animal torture going on in the round arena. It was like the Roman Coliseum. I know enough about rhetoric where I can teach you. It will make the time fly.”

“For God’s sake, Mary. Why have you withheld this book from us!”

“My father was taken prisoner by the Inquisition, put in prison, and tortured. His books were ruled heretical, I don’t want to instigate spurious opinions about me and my father, for, I have nowhere to go to get away from you if you start in on that!”

“In Jesus’ name, relieve of us of our excruciating tedium! We are dying here Mary! Don’t be cruel!”

“My tutor taught my brother and I rhetoric from your father’s book. We can have a rhetorical argument about having Mary produce it for our salvation from our mind-numbing malaise!”

“Good idea! But, it is fair we all receive a sample. Is it not?”

“Would you care to elaborate?”

On March 31, 2019 I found Thomas Wilson’s book ‘The Art of Rhetorike’. There are several spellings. After reading forty, pages I believe my theory that Thomas Wilson had a hand in writing some of William Shakespeare’s’ plays, if not all, is sound.

On this day, I copyright my idea that I arrived at with my battle I am having with Meg Whitman, and the alleged owners of  the California Barrel Company, over ownership of this company name that once made barrels. I spoke with an attorney. I am critical of Quibi. To discover Apple TV is being backed by Steven Spielberg, and a bevy of Hollywood talent, is ironic, for Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor and Richard Burton are in my Rosamond Family Tree, as is, Sir Thomas Wilson. I do not want Shakespeare to fall into either capitalist camps, because William made Acting more than an Art Form, as I will show in my novel. Then there is the question……..

Who owns America – and why?

I will give my reader a good example of how Rhetoric fits well with Shakespeare’s’ work. Peter G. Platt has written one of the finest essays I have read. I am envious.

Then, there is this illustration. It took my breath away. Do you know who he is, the man leading noble women with chains linked to the tip of his tongue. He is my hero.

What really got my interest is this line……….

“And God save the Queen’s majesty.”

Where were Britain’s great Rhetorical Men when the Brexit issue came up?

Truth.

NARSETES.

White I know from red, and dark from bright,
And milk from blood in hawthorn-flowers: but not
Woman from woman.

ALBOVINE.

How should God our Lord,
Except his eye see further than his world?
For women ever make themselves anew,
Meseems, to match and mock the maker.  Friend,
If ever I were friend of thine in fight,
Speak, and I bid thee not speak truth: I know
Thy tongue knows nought but truth or silence.

NARSETES.

Is it
A king’s or friend’s part, king, to bid his friend
Speak what he knows not?  Speak then thou, that I
May find thy will and answer it.

ALBOVINE.

I am fain
And loth to tell thee how it wrings my heart
That now this hard-eyed heavy southern sun
Hath wrought its will upon us all a year
And yet I know not if my wife be mine.

NARSETES.

Thy meanest man at arms had known ere dawn
Blinked on his bridal birthday.

ALBOVINE.

Did I bid thee
Mock, and forget me for thy friend—I say not,
King?  Is thy heart so light and lean a thing,
So loose in faith and faint in love?  I bade thee
Stand to me, help me, hold my hand in thine
And give my heart back answer.  This it is,
Old friend and fool, that gnaws my life in twain—
The worm that writhes and feeds about my heart—
The devil and God are crying in either ear
One murderous word for ever, night and day,
Dark day and deadly night and deadly day,
Can she love thee who slewest her father?  I
Love her.

A Tale of the House of the Wolfings and All the Kindreds of the Mark is a fantasy novel by William Morris, perhaps the first modern fantasy writer to unite an imaginary world with the element of the supernatural, and thus the precursor of much of present-day fantasy literature.[1] It was first published in hardcover by Reeves and Turner in 1889.[2]

The book influenced J. R. R. Tolkien‘s popular The Lord of the Rings.[citation needed]

This work and its successor, The Roots of the Mountains, were to some degree historical novels, with little or no magic. Morris would go on to develop the new genre established in this work in such later fantasies as Child Christopher and Goldilind the FairThe Wood Beyond the WorldThe Well at the World’s End, and The Water of the Wondrous Isles.[3]

Plot[edit]

The House of the Wolfings is a romantically reconstructed portrait of the lives of the Germanic Gothic tribes, written in an archaic style and incorporating a large amount of poetry. Morris combines his own idealistic views with what was actually known at the time of his subjects’ folkways and language. He portrays them as simple and hardworking, galvanized into heroic action to defend their families and liberty by the attacks of imperial Rome.

Morris’s Goths inhabit an area called the Mark on a river in the forest of Mirkwood, divided into the Upper-mark, the Mid-mark and the Nether-mark. They worship their gods Odin and Tyr by sacrificing horses, and rely on seers who foretell the future and serve as psychic news-gatherers.

The men of the Mark choose two War Dukes to lead them against their enemies, one each from the House of the Wolfings and the House of the Laxings. The Wolfing war leader is Thiodolf, a man of mysterious and perhaps divine antecedents, whose ability to lead is threatened by his possession of a magnificent dwarf-made mail-shirt which, unknown to him, is cursed. He is supported by his lover the Wood Sun and their daughter the Hall Sun, who are related to the gods.

The Roesmont/Rosemont family owned Melon Woflswinckle, a watermill. My kindred were named Roelof, Rudolph. Rodolphus, meaning “famous wolf’.

When I asked Christine why she was staring so hard at Rena when they met, she said;

“She reminded me of a vampire, one of those women who play vampires in the movies.”

Rena had played at being a vampire with her boyfriend. She gave me an incredible kiss in order to capture my soul. Was she just playing? Was I playing? We were wild Danish wolves on our mountain. Together, we had overcome the world.

When I called Rean in Nebraska she was out in a field of grass surrounded by a thousand crows that took flight at sunset. She said;

“If you were here right now, I would give you such a kiss.”

“I love you more afar, then near.”

Rena had been thinking of me when I called. She had summoned me from afar. We were now closer then when we were near. Our souls were……one. Wherever she go, there go I. Wherever I go….. mon beauté des bois
go with me. Wolves mate for life. Do not pick our roses.

I am going to render the Rosemont cote of arms that shows a dancing wolf, and the words ‘Duke of the Woods’.

I have immortalized my family. Above are photos of the EE Zunft Rebleuten Guild of Basel whose emblem is a dancing wolf. Fremasonry has its roots in the guilds. Notice the cote of arms behind glass in top photo. William Morris said the sons of the House of Wolfen are best suited to tell the tale of their battle with the slave masters of Rome.

“Erhart de Rougemont who bought in 1495 “the house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the Freistrasse.’
Peter Rosemond had seen in print the letters from Erasmus to Gotschalk Rosemondt. He noticed that a seal used by a Rosemont in Holland, bearing a jumping fox, was like an emblem he had noticed in a wall of the house Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle. This seal
dated back to 1430,
This James (or Jacob, for these names were once interchangeable) was the son of Hans Ulrich
Rosemond, born 1623, a weaver; who was a son of Hans, a weaver, born
1581; who was a son of Fred Rosemond, born 1552, a weaver, member of
town council and a local captain; who was the son of another Hans
whose date of birth is not known, but he too, was a weaver and became
a citizen of Basle in 1534. His father was Erhart de Rougemont who
bought in 1495 “the house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the
Freistrasse.’ Peter Rosemond further reported information from the
Records Office in Basle that “before Basle the family resided in
Holland up to 1338, and it is said they descended from the estate
Rosemont, near Belfort, in France, where also the village Rougemont
is found.” A family coat-of-arms was registered in Basle about 1537
when the first Hans became a resident there. A reproduction of this
coat-of-arms in the writer’s possession shows a weaver’s crook
conspicuously, and it will be remembered that in Ireland our people
were linen weavers and farmers, and that Edward, the elder, was a
weaver in this country. Peter Rosemond had seen in print the letters
from Erasmus to Gotschalk Rosemondt. He noticed that a seal used by a
Rosemont in Holland, bearing a jumping fox, was like an emblem he had
noticed in a wall of the house Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle. This seal
dated back to 1430, whereas the coat-of-arms above mentioned dates
from 1534, it seems. Peter Rosemond died September 22, 1930. This is
but a sketch of what he wrote.”

The Wolfswinkelse Water Mill was a watermill on the Dommel. The water mill is located in the municipality of Sint-Oedenrode between Banda and Nijnsel. This mill may have ever known as Wallace .

Etymologie[Edit]

In the name Wallace means a corner Shop . The element can be in multiple ways, however, Wolf explained. Many think the first time to the animal name, but it can also save on a field curvature . That seems like a meaningful statement because such terrain form around emphatically pointing to falls (that is, a strikingly high steep Ridge along the Dommel, half a kilometre to the North).

History[Edit]

Glory Wolfswinkel to 1604[Edit]

The mill was about 1200 by Duke Henry I of Brabant donated to the Priory of Postel. Later it became a little glory, consisting of a omgrachte hofstede (the Water Horse), a farm and water mill. This area was by the Ducal couple of Joanna, Duchess of Brabant and Wenceslas I of Luxembourg in 1381 in loan issued to the nobleman Edmund d’Aquis. There would then also a clasp. The oldest known occupant would Agnes van Wolfswinkel, after which her son Cameron has inherited the property of Dijnter, after which the owners were Dijnter and Emont of Geerke. In 1450 was the glory in possession of the family of Rosemont, and then the families Coensborgh and Molenpas. The lock was already gone. In the 15th and 16th centuries are listed followed by the families Huyoel families, Baja, Daly, Valentine and Thielemans.

From 1604 to 1795[Edit]

The mill was In 1604 , separate from the estate, sold as a separate fief to Coenraedt Jan A. In 1628 was the mill property of Jhr. the Jada who in 1650 a oil mill at the original corn mill. About 1720 the mill was in the possession of Lord Lambert, count of Val, and after his death the mill was sold to Johan Carel de Jada, who was Lord of Eckart .

In the French period, at the end of the 18th century, the mill was burned by the English and German troops in order in this way, the English army, that was pulled together on the Nistelrooise Heide, to warn of the approaching French. The remains were then sold to Widow in 1795 Raon van schalkwijk, which the mill 50 metres upstream re-constructed.

From 1795 to the present[Edit]

After the rebuilding has known many mill owners. She was used during the 19th century as the volmolen Geldorp and by the Tilburg textile manufacturers. Although the mill was still in operation in 1878 , touched them soon thereafter in decline. In 1928 , the lock in the Dommel and the water mill was sold to the Dommel water board. The watermill was demolished after 1945 , despite attempts at preservation.

Now rest on this scenic spot only the Mill House. In addition, reminds the Water farm to former glory. Furthermore, reminds a small monument to the water mill, as well as leading the way out there, which still carries the name watermolenstraat . The cycle route along the Peel performs there.
