The Gold (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Gold Elizabeth. Open the door, the window there, I suffocate for want of air, Yes, yes, and let the breezes blow, What matters it if damp or dry!Josephine, my mail! What, not a line?Why, that I can't believe.If it's not asking over much, I pray you look again.(Soliloquizes)But why should I for letters sigh?Are they not the breath of men?And men are to me most wearisome.Josephine. It is, alas, as I have said, There are no letters, but here's Miss Evelyn.Elizabeth. Ah, welcome, doubly so, my dear, I've a case of the "blues," I fear, Come close and give me of your thought, It seems as if I were distraught.Evelyn. Then let me read. What shall it be?History or philosophy?Elizabeth. History? About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
