FOREWORD
Though a lot has been written of the South, it kind of feels to me that this a part of our kingdom is much less understood than the other half. definitely the South, itself, feels that this is often precise. Its courting to the North makes me contemplate not anything rather a lot as that of an attractive, delicate spouse, to a huge, powerful, amiable, if a bit of thick-skinned husband. those had one nice quarrel which just about led to divorce. He suggestion her headstrong; she concept him overbearing. The quarrel made her in poor health; she has been for a while recuperating. yet although they've got settled their problems and live back in amity jointly, and even though he, man-like, has part forgotten that they ever quarreled in any respect, now that peace reigns in the home back, she has now not forgotten. There nonetheless lingers in her brain the sensation that he by no means relatively understood her, that he by no means understood her difficulties and her struggles, and that he by no means will. And it sort of feels to me extra that, as is generally the case with better halves who give some thought to themselves misunderstood, the fault is partially, yet on no account altogether, hers. He, upon one hand, is prone to move the problem off with a: "There, there! it is all over now. simply be strong and disregard it!" whereas she, within the depths of her middle, keeps a bit of wistfulness, a bit wounded feeling, which explanations her to claim to herself: "Thank God our domestic used to be now not damaged up, but—I want that he can be a little extra thoughtful, occasionally, in view of all that i've got suffered."
For my half, i'm the common-or-garden yet dedicated pal of the kin. Having identified him first, having been from boyhood his spouse, i'll possibly have sympathized with him initially. yet on the grounds that i've got come to grasp her, too, that's now not so. and that i do imagine i do know her—proud, delicate, high-strung, beneficiant, attractive attractiveness that she is! in addition, after the style of many one other "friend of the family," i've got fallen in love along with her. Loving her from afar, I ship her as a nosegay those chapters amassed in her personal gardens. If the various vegetation are of a sort for which she doesn't care, if a few have thorns, whether a few are just weeds, I pray her to recollect that from what used to be starting to be in her gardens i used to be compelled to make my selection, and to think that, regardless of the defects of my bouquet, it really is intended to be a host of roses.
J. S. October 1, 1917.
ON trips throughout the STATES
On trips during the States we commence, ... We keen freshmen of all, lecturers of all, enthusiasts of all. We reside some time in each urban and city ... —Walt Whitman.
Had my better half and that i by no means crossed the continent jointly, had we by no means long gone "abroad at home," i'd have curbed my impatience at first of our moment voyage. yet from the time we lower back from our first trip, after having spent a few months in attempting, as a few one placed it, to "discover America," I felt the gnawings of excited urge for food. The mammoth sweep of the rustic regularly prompt to me a few nice delectable repast: a ceremonial dinner unfold for 100 million site visitors; and having chanced on myself not able, within the time first dispensed, to consume greater than a part of it—a strip around the desk, because it have been, stretching from ny on one part to San Francisco at the other—I have hungered impatiently for extra. certainly, to be relatively sincere, I may still prefer to try and consume it all.
Months sooner than our genuine departure for the South the day for leaving was once appointed; days prior to we mounted upon our educate; hours prior to i purchased my price ticket. after which, while my trunks had left the home, whilst my taxicab was once ordered and my trustworthy battered suitcase stood packed to bulging within the corridor, my spouse, the Illustrator, telephoned to assert that definite drawings he needs to end ahead of leaving weren't performed, that he will be not able to compliment me that afternoon, as deliberate, yet needs to wait until eventually the hour of darkness train.
