Stockton, F. R. (n.d.). Captain Eli's Best Ear. Retrieved from

Excerpt: THE little seaside village of Sponkannis lies so quietly upon a protected spot on our Atlantic coast that it makes no more stir in the world than would a pebble which, held between one?s finger and thumb, should be dipped below the surface of a millpond and then dropped. About the post?office and the store both under the same roof the greater number of the houses cluster, as if they had come for their week?s groceries, or were waiting for the mail, while toward the west the dwellings become fewer and fewer, until at last the village blends into a long stretch of sandy coast and scrubby pine?woods. Eastward the village ends abruptly at the foot of a windswept bluff, on which no one cares to build.
