Excerpt
Excerpt: Chapter 1. It was Sunday, and, according to his custom on that day, McTeague took his dinner at two in the afternoon at the car conductors? coffee-joint on Polk Street. He had a thick gray soup; heavy, underdone meat, very hot, on a cold plate; two kinds of vegetables; and a sort of suet pudding, full of strong butter and sugar. On his way back to his office, one block above, he stopped at Joe Frenna?s saloon and bought a pitcher of steam beer. It was his habit to leave the pitcher there on his way to dinner.
