Sitting next to me, I have been reading the small print of this very cool romance book. To get a feel of this vintage book, take a peek at the opening line.
It was one of those beautiful, lengthening days, when May was pressing back with both hands the shades of the morning and the evening; May in New York one hundred and twenty-one years ago, and yet the May of A.D. 1886,-the same clear air and wind, the same rarefied freshness, full of faint, passing aromas from the wet earth and the salt sea and the blossoming gardens.
Page 56, 5th sentence:
"You have heard more than you need listen to." (I talked to the man an hour last night. He is as honest as a looking-glass, and I read him all through with the greatest ease. I am sure that he has a heart very tender, and devoid of anger or prejudice of any kind.)
