Excerpt from Nearly a Tragedy: A Comedy in Five Acts Scene I. - The White Hart, a country inn near London. Mike, polishing a pewter tankard at the door. Capon and Dick Whiting seated in the open air at a table close by, each in the act of finishing a mug of ale. Dick. (Laying down his empty flagon.) I tell ee what, Master Capon, that there ale is as good as ever was brewed in Kent; and I only wish as that young gen'leman as teaches at the Grange yonder could be made to taste a little on't now and then, as it would bring the color to his cheek a bit. Capon. (Placing his empty pot on the table also.) True, lad, it is good ale; but when did you ever taste anything else at the White Hart, where I have lived, man and boy, upward of sixty year, and that I have kept for full forty? And as for Mr. Travers you speak on, I will say he's a proper gen'leman, and a bravish one, too; for I seed'n myself leap over the wall out of the wood, when Brown Bess was a runnin' away with Miss Alice, and whip the sweet creetur out of the saddle, as if she was only a baby, instead of a blessed angel of twenty, as she is. Mike. Divil resaive the word of lie in that, Dick; for I was down there myself jest as she came out of a faint in his arms. And let me tell you, dear, that bright as that pot is (holding it out admiringly), it's only a blacky-moor to the blaze of her eyes when she looked up in his face and began to thank him. Dick. I know some un as would get his back up at that, Mike, if he heerd on't. Mike. (Contemptuously.) Sir Riginald! Is it that miserable crayt-shure you mane, that, wid all his airs, looks like a hap'orth of soap afther a hard day's washin'? Be me sowkins, I hope she'll never throw herself away on him, anyway! Capon. Yes, Mike, that's all very well; but you know he has got the Hermitage, and every acre belongin' to it, into his clutches in some way or other!

At times it had seemed so irrational to me to endure this seven years of misery just to end it all the day it was up. Of course it was no more irrational than what Carol did. But she had her reasons and I had mine. The thought of that unhappy spirit wandering around wherever all that takes place had filled me every night of the past seven years with guilt and remorse. That was why I was doing it. mainly. While putting myself beyond the reach of the law, at least that's what they'd told us on Superman, I was also atoning in front of Carol for the way I'd treated her at the end. Every day I spoke to her about it. Every day I'd renewed my pledge to meet her. Every day she had the chance to see me suffer for what I'd done to her. At least now I felt I had purged myself of my guilt in her eyes.
