The Figure in the Carpet

I had done a few things and earned a few penceI had perhaps even had time to begin to think I was finer than was perceived by the patronising; but when I take the little measure of my course (a fidgety habit, for its none of the longest yet) I count my real start from the evening George Corvick, breathless and worried, came in to ask me a service.

What explanation could be more to the point than my obvious fitness for the task?

Moreover if I always read him as soon as I could get hold of him I had a particular reason for wishing to read him now: I had accepted an invitation to Bridges for the following Sunday, and it had been mentioned in Lady Janes note that Mr. Vereker was to be there. I was young enough for a flutter at meeting a man of his renown, and innocent enough to believe the occasion would demand the display of an acquaintance with his last. ......Buy Now (To Read More)
