About this title


January, and at four in the afternoon a gray sky shut in the city, like the cylindrical background of a cyclorama. Xow and then a wreath of steam chalked itself on the slate-colored horizon ;and across the river, far over to the westward, there was a splash of pink, sole evidence of the existence of the sun, which no one had seen for twenty-four hours. As Miss Marlenspuyk turned the corner of the side street she stood still for a moment, looking down on the long Eiverside Drive and on the mighty Hudson below, flowing sluggishly be neath its shield of ice. She had long passed the limit of threescore years and ten, and she had been an indefatigable traveller; and as she gazed, absorbing the noble beauty of the splen did scene, unsurpassable in any other city she had ever visited, she was glad that she was a Xew-Y orker born and bred, and that it was her privilege to dwell where a vision like this was to be had for the asking. But while she looked lovingly up and down the solemn stream the wind sprang up again, and fluttered her gray curls and blew her wrappings about her.
