9781330516225: The Ghost Girl (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Ghost Girl

The vivid climax to Nelly Chilton's wedding startled a metropolis long since used to the startling. But the spectacular termination of the beauty's marriage was commonplace by comparison to incidents that supervened.

In Bil Sayers' novel, "The Halls of Eblis," many of these incidents are told. The telling is the admirable work of an admirable writer. Events are set forth, not as they did occur, but as they should have occurred, which is the only way to tell a story. In the present document that process has been reversed.

Among those who stood witness to the events were Jim Bradish and your servant. He and I had been classmates at Harvard, fellow students in foreign universities, companions in the proscenia and side-scenes of life. We had travelled, feasted and starved together. I may say I knew him, that is if one human being ever does know another. While in Japan a cable caught us. His father was dead. Bradish was a very rich man.

At the time, I had, or thought I had, enough to go around, a bundle of bonds with which the trustee was diverting himself. When Bradish and I reached New York he was a plutocrat and I was a pauper. I hate the alliteration. More hateful still was the fact.
