"[...] "And I hope you like it," said Overt, looking at Mrs. St. George.
"Well, a little house in Manchester Square-there's a limit to the enthusiasm that inspires."
"Oh I meant being at home again-being back in Piccadilly."
"My daughter likes Piccadilly-that's the main thing. She's very fond of art and music and literature and all that kind of thing. She missed it in India and she finds it in London, or she hopes she'll find it. Mr. St. George has promised to help her-he has been awfully kind to her. She has gone to church-she's fond of that too-but they'll all be back in a quarter of an hour. You must let me introduce you to her-she'll be so glad to know you. I dare say she has read every blest word you've written."
"I shall be delighted-I haven't written so very many," Overt pleaded, feeling, and without resentment, that the General at least was vagueness itself about that.

Meet the Author

Henry James was born in New York City in 1843, the son of theologian Henry James, Sr., and brother of philosopher William James. He entered Harvard Law School at nineteen but soon quit to write and travel in Europe – to Paris, for example, where he met Flaubert, Turgenev, George Eliot, and Zola. Settling in London in 1876, he gained international fame with Daisy Miller, which scandalized Victorian society and sold thousands of copies. Never again would he equal its popularity, but his increasingly sophisticated and meticulously observed works, such as The Golden Bowl and The Ambassadors, established him as the first master of psychological fiction. He died in England in 1916.

His novella, The Coxon Fund, is also a part of The Art Of The Novella series.
