 LEGENDS OF THE PROVINCE HOUSE: IV - Old Esther Dudley
It was old Esther Dudley, who had dwelt almost immemorial years in this mansion, until her presence seemed as in­separable from it as the recollections of its history.
And to do the people jus­tice, stern republicans as they had now become, they were well content that the old gentlewoman, in her hoop petticoat and faded embroidery, should still haunt the palace of ruined pride and over­thrown power, the symbol of a departed system, embodying a history in her person.
And at last, after long, long years, old Esther Dudley knew, or perchance she only dreamed, that a Royal Governor was on the eve of returning to the Province House, to receive the heavy key which Sir William Howe had committed to her charge.

Throughout the province, we found that most of the hooked pieces that were registered dated from the early 1900s to 1970.
Some people who brought items to be registered also brought old newspaper clippings and photographs, family genealogies, and written recollections about the rug hookers in their families.
Such is the case with a series of old mats, probably hooked in the 1930s, found in a house recently purchased on Tancook Island.

 Legends of the Province House   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Old South church, too, still pointed its antique spire into the darkness, and was lost between earth and heaven; and as I passed, its clock, which had warned so many generations how transitory was their life-time, spoke heavily and slow the same unregarded moral to myself.
The old gentleman's draught acted as a solvent upon his memory, so that it overflowed with tales, traditions, anecdotes of famous dead people, and traits of ancient manners, some of which were childish as a nurse's lullaby, while others might have been worth the notice of the grave historian.
A singular tale had gone abroad among the ladies of the province, that their fair rival was indebted for much of the irresistible charm of her appearance to a certain article of dress— an embroidered mantle—which had been wrought by the most skilful artist in London, and possessed even magical properties of adornment.

 JUDICIAL INTERVENTION - THE OLD PROVINCE FOR LAW AND ORDER
The Old Province for Law and Order must surely cease to be part of the legal system before its centenary in three years time.
My proposition is that various participants in the legal system effectively created the industrial arrangements because of their perception that social interventionism was needed to offset the alleged failure of the labour market to produce "fair" outcomes and because they saw a role for themselves.
In tort, there is now a situation where "the concept of reasonableness is of key importance and the duty owed by one person to another depends so much on the facts of the case" (and judges and legal commentators have even "noted the tendency of the law of tort to supplant contract").

 Twice Told Tales - TALE XII-1
In those days the front of the Province House looked upon the street; and the whole site now occupied by the brick range of stores, as well as the present court-yard, was laid out in grass plats, overshadowed by trees and bordered by a wrought-iron fence.
It was the idea of the beholders that these figures went to join the mysterious funeral that had halted in front of the Province House; yet that supposition seemed to be contradicted by the air of triumph with which they waved their hands, as they crossed the threshold and vanished through the portal.
Next was seen a stout man, dressed in rich and courtly attire, but not of courtly demeanor; his gait had the swinging motion of a seaman's walk, and chancing to stumble on the staircase, he suddenly grew wrathful, and was heard to mutter an oath.

 Moldova
The old medieval principality of Moldavia had a red military flag with a bison's (not ox's, as you think) head in the center.
After the Ottoman invasion, Moldova lost its independence and became a sort of self-ruled province and its rulers (Gospodars) were appointed by Ottomans.
The eagle is from the old Romanian coat of arms and ultimately from Byzantium; the ox head represents the old province of Bessarabia; the cross is obviously Christian; the sceptre and olive branch are probably for sovereignty and peace; as for the flower and crescent, I have no idea.

On one occasion, she startled the townspeople by a brilliant illumination of the Province House, with candles at every pane of glass, and a transparency of the King's initials and a crown of light in the great balcony window.
And Esther Dudley fancied that as soon as the wide door should be flung open, all the pomp and splendor of by-gone times would pace majestically into the Province House, and the gilded tapestry of the past would be brightened by the sunshine of the present.
And now, again, the clock of the Old South threw its voice of ages on the breeze, knolling the hourly knell of the Past, crying out far and wide through the multitudinous city, and filling our ears, as we sat in the dusky chamber, with its reverberating depth of tone.
