Excerpt from A Daughter of Two Worlds: A Novel of New York Life

Life's histories do not begin at some definite point, before which there was nothing, and after which there is everything. Their beginnings reach back through years and generations and through the conditions which have helped twist or nourish or gloriously develop them. But since histories must start somewhere, this history of Jennie Malone, and of her strange father Black Jerry, and of the three men who loved her, and of the half-dozen or more other persons who vitally influenced her ambitions and her soul - this history may be started, perhaps somewhat arbitrarily, on a certain night early in October in the Pekin Café. For the Pekin had been Jennie's environment since her early childhood; its habitues, many her friends, had all been familiar figures to her; and upon such scenes as this evening's she had peeped almost nightly.

On that October evening, in the little office at the rear of the smoke-fogged, orchestra-inspirited cafe, sat two men, a bottle of imported mineral water between them. One was deep of chest and of powerful width of shoulders, and had a square, grim face, with that stippled duskiness which the closest shaving cannot expunge from dark and heavily bearded skins.
