Excerpt: Chapter 1. ?Everyone asks me what I ?think? of everything,? said Spencer Brydon; ?and I make answer as I can--begging or dodging the question, putting them off with any nonsense. It wouldn?t matter to any of them really,? he went on, ?for, even were it possible to meet in that stand-anddeliver way so silly a demand on so big a subject, my ?thoughts? would still be almost altogether about something that concerns only myself.? He was talking to Miss Staverton, with whom for a couple of months now he had availed himself of every possible occasion to talk; this disposition and this resource, this comfort and support, as the situation in fact presented itself, having promptly enough taken the first place in the considerable array of rather unattenuated surprises attending his so strangely belated return to America.
