Excerpt from A Drama in Dutch
One December evening, early in the sixties, Peter van Eijk and his wife sat eating a frugal supper in the little back parlour of their tobacconist shop in the City Road. A bright fire burned in the grate, for the weather was raw and foggy. The furniture of the room, though well worn and inartistic, had some pretensions to gentility. A stuffed horsehair couch, with mahogany back, chairs to match, and a round table, whose single central leg branched off into four hideously-carved paws, almost filled all the available space. A tall, quaint Dutch clock, reaching almost to the ceiling, stood in a corner; while in a wicker cradle quietly reposed their little one-year-old Maarten. A hanging-lamp cast a dull light on the two figures, who were discussing matters of great importance to themselves. There were traces of tears about the woman's eyes.
