    a seldom usage of a Nominative Absolute Participial Construction

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether the following usage of the Nominative Absolute Participial Construction is acceptable in your area?

    Conciliation falling, fore remains; but force failing, no further hope of conciliation is left.

    Weather permitting, we shall start tomorrow.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
