Excerpt from The Second-Class Passenger: And Other Stories

The party from the big German mail-boat had nearly completed their inspection of Mozambique. They had walked up and down the main street, admired the palms, lunched at the costly table of Lazarus, and purchased "curios" - Indian silks, Javanese knives, Birmingham metal-work, and what not- as mementoes of their explorations. In particular, Miss Paterson had invested in a heavy bronze image - apparently Japanese - concerning which she entertained the thrilling delusion that it was an object of local worship. It was a grotesque thing, massive and bulky, weighing not much less than ten or twelve pounds. Hence it was confided to the careful porterage of Dawson, an assiduous and favoured courtier of Miss Paterson; and he, having lunched, was fated to leave it behind at Lazarus' Hotel.

Miss Paterson shook her fluffy curls at him. They were drawing towards dinner, and the afternoon was wearing stale.

"I did so want that idol," she said plaintively.
