WILLIAM BABINGTON MAXWELL
English novelist
(1866 - 1938)
  CHECK READING LIST (1)  

The village postmaster stood staring at an official envelope that had just been shaken out a mailbag upon the sorting table. It was addressed to himself; and for a few moments his heart beat quicker, with sharp, clean percussions, as if it were trying to imitate the sounds made by two clerks as they plied their stampers on the blocks. Perhaps this envelope contained his fate.
