Excerpt from The Old Maid, Vol. 4: And Other Stories It was an old and sordid building; the walls were crumbling to pieces, the grated, iron gates were eaten away by rust, the holes in the broken windows had been mended with Old newspapers, and the ancestral portraits which hung against the walls, showed that it was no tiller Of the soil, nor miserable laborer whose strength had gradually worn out and bent his back, who lived there. Great, knotty elm trees sheltered it, as if they had been a tall, green screen, and a large garden, full Of wild rose-trees and of straggling plants, as well as of sickly-looking vegetables, which sprang up half-with ered from the sandy soil, went down as far as the bank Of the river.

Excerpt from The Listener: And Other Stories Sept. 4. - I have hunted all over London for rooms suited to my income - izo a year - and have at last found them. Two rooms, without modern conveniences, it is true, and in an old, ram shackle building, but within a stone's throw of P Place and in an eminently respectable street. The rent is only 25 a year. I had begun to despair when at last I found them by chance. The chance was a mere chance, and unworthy of record. I had to sign a lease for a year, and I did so willingly. The furniture from our old place in H - shire, which has been stored so long, will just suit them. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
