Professor Stevens has been suddenly bereft of his understanding, accompanied with such symptoms of violence that the strongest restraints upon his person were necessary.” Don’t worry, this isn’t current news.

The FDLP provides Government information at no cost to designated depository libraries throughout the country and territories. These depository libraries, in turn, provide local, no-fee access to Government information in an impartial environment with professional assistance. Continue Reading
