Excerpt from The Library of the University of California
The morning train for London carries many travellers whose lives seem well ordered, early risers, well-to-do peo ple, outside the world of fashion, to whom the early morning is perhaps more en joyable than the late hours of the night. Of this number were my two chance com panions in our comfortable railway car riage, a gentleman and his wife. They both insisted on my smoking, the husband joining me in a cigar. This led to conver sation wherein I soon found by their ac cent that my new acquaintances were from the North Country, which naturally led to my reviving my Yorkshire days. My new friend was the proprietor of woollen mills, and entertained me by showing me samples of fine Cashmere wools and telling me much that was interesting regarding them. I gave his wife a small box of strawberries at Amiens, which pleased them both, and when we bade each other good -bye at Bou logue, it was not, I think, without a f eel ing that we had all three appeared to ad vantage to each other.
