Det var Lørdag Eftermiddag, omtrent et Kvarter over fire, hvis jeg husker rigtigt, og Maluvejen, der fører til "den boblende Kilde", det eneste Sted i Shanghai, hvor man kunde trække Vejret, var overfyldt af elegante Vogne, Ponyer, Cykler, for ikke at tale om alle Slags Jinrickshawer, der fulgte efter hinanden i en lang Procession ud til Kilden, medens den europæiske Del af Shanghais Beboere og et betydeligt Antal af den indfødte var draget ud for at se paa et Væddeløbsridt, der, skønt det ikke var meget ...

Overview

Det var Lørdag Eftermiddag, omtrent et Kvarter over fire, hvis jeg husker rigtigt, og Maluvejen, der fører til "den boblende Kilde", det eneste Sted i Shanghai, hvor man kunde trække Vejret, var overfyldt af elegante Vogne, Ponyer, Cykler, for ikke at tale om alle Slags Jinrickshawer, der fulgte efter hinanden i en lang Procession ud til Kilden, medens den europæiske Del af Shanghais Beboere og et betydeligt Antal af den indfødte var draget ud for at se paa et Væddeløbsridt, der, skønt det ikke var meget pirrende, i og for sig var vigtigt, da det var den eneste Fornøjelse, Kolonien havde den Eftermiddag.
Jeg var gaaet et temmelig langt Stykke og havde saa taget en Jinrickshaw, mere af Forfængelighed, end fordi jeg havde Raad til det. For at sige Sandheden, og den kommer jo dog en Gang frem, hvor meget jeg saa prøver paa at hindre det, jeg holdt Skinnet ved lige, og skønt jeg laa tilbagelænet i mit Køretøj og røg min Cherut med fyrstelig Mine, var jeg mig dog pinlig bevidst, at naar jeg skulde betale den Køretur, saa vilde min Kasse neppe overleve Slaget.
Jeg havde været mere end almindelig uheldig siden min Ankomst til Shanghai. Jeg havde søgt alle ledige Pladser lige fra de allerfineste til Sekretærposten ved en Klub, der havde kommunistiske Tendenser og laa et eller andet Sted paa Grænsen af Kineserbyen - men stadig uden Held. Til at faa den ene havde jeg ikke tilstrækkelig Protektion, til at faa den anden manglede jeg den Evne til at indsmigre mig, der er saa væsenlig, naar man søger visse Ting.

Meet the Author

Boothby was born in Adelaide, son of Thomas Wilde Boothby, who for a time was a member of the South Australian Legislative Assembly. Guy Boothby's grandfather was Benjamin Boothby (1803-1868), judge of the supreme court of South Australia from 1853 to 1867.Alex C Castles, , Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 3, Melbourne University Press, 1969, pp 194-196. When Boothby was six he travelled to England with his mother, and thus was educated at Salisbury, Lord Weymouth's Grammar (now Warminster School) and Christ's Hospital, London.In 1890 Boothby wrote the libretto for a comic opera, Sylvia, which was published and produced at Adelaide in December 1890, and in 1891 appeared The Jonquil: an Opera. The music in each case was written by Cecil James Sharp. Around this time Boothby accepted a role as private secretary to the mayor of Adelaide, Lewis Cohen, but was "not contented" with the work. There was little opportunity for Boothby to progress in the Adelaide Corporation: thus, with the support of Chohen, Boothby moved to Brisbane where he believed that he would find "a wider opening for his talents". From Brisbane Boothby made his way to England, arriving in London in 1894.In 1894 he published On the Wallaby or Through the East and Across Australia, an account of the travels of himself and his brother, including a description of their journey across Australia from Cooktown to Adelaide. In the same year his first novel, In Strange Company, was published in London and was quickly successful. Boothby moved to the United Kingdom in 1894. He wrote over 50 books over the course of a decade, before dying of pneumonia in Bournemouth.
