James, H. (n.d.). The Lesson of the Master. Retrieved from

Excerpt: He had been told the ladies were at church, but this was corrected by what he saw from the top of the steps--they descended from a great height in two arms, with a circular sweep of the most charming effect--at the threshold of the door which, from the long bright gallery, overlooked the immense lawn. Three gentlemen, on the grass, at a distance, sat under the great trees, while the fourth figure showed a crimson dress that told as a ?bit of color? amid the fresh rich green. The servant had so far accompanied Paul Overt as to introduce him to this view, after asking him if he wished first to go to his room. The young man declined that privilege, conscious of no disrepair from so short and easy a journey and always liking to take at once a general perceptive possession of a new scene. He stood there a little with his eyes on the group and on the admirable picture, the wide grounds of an old country-house near London-- that only made it better--on a splendid Sunday in June. ?But that lady, who?s she?? he said to the servant before the man left him.
