Quiller-Couch was then writing a striking short story nearly every week. Up to that time I had only interviewed two editors. One was Mr.
He looked at the writing for a minute or two, dried it carefully by the fire, replaced the book in its two cases, and put it into his pocket. He said no other word but "Thank you," and I asked him no questions. This was all I ever heard of the boy's parentage: nor do I believe he knew more himself.
The emigrants, of whom we are now writing, constituted the third step in this progression; and they imported along with them, or drew after them, the peculiarities belonging to their own degree of advancement.
