Excerpt from Frederick Young: A NovelWithin the richly appointed office of Young, Clark & Co., importers and wholesale dealers in cotton and wool, on a dismal day in November, sat the three members of the firm in earnest conversation. It was one of those disagreeable days when New York city, the metropolis of the Western world, was enveloped in a cold fog which had blown up from the lower bay. Occasional showers of cold rain added to the discomfort of those who were unfortunately obliged to be abroad. I say obliged to be, for surely if one had any choice, he, on such a day as this, would prefer the comforts of home to natures hospitality, which is served out alike to all, regardless of station, wealth or potentiality.The rain spitefully hurled itself against the plate-glass windows; sudden gusts of wind made the shutters rattle; water-proof covered pedestrians hurried restlessly to and fro; huge umbrellas constantly darkened the windows, but those within appeared to be unconscious of the inclemency without. And why should it have been otherwise? A cheerful fire burned in the grate; a comfortable warmth pervaded the apartment; the rich cherry furniture and finish added a harmonious half-tone to the surroundings, while the heavy Turkey carpet and the comfortably fashioned, leather-covered chairs in which the three gentlemen were seated, completed a tout ensemble which those of worldly means only can enjoy.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
