Excerpt from Miss. Forrester: A Novel

This is life, she thought. This is life, such as common men and women lead in the common streets (i knew it, or very near to it, once), and by how much better are we of who look at them from within? Not much, I think. Is it a gift to be prized? By me, yes, for I know how to live; but by the every-day run Of people, to a woman like this one who's dying, where is life's worth 2 What good would be done to her by keeping her from going? If one Of these wretches in the street was Sinking from his cold and pain into forgetfulness, which would be the mercy, - to let him go, or to hold him back? Her life hasn't lacked food and shelter, certainly, but it has been a life Of pain, Of peevishness, Of discontent, for' years. Why seek to prolong it? Why, above all, when, as she told me yesterday, she believes herself to be going to a better place and better company than mine!

And Miss Forrester walked back to the bedside, and, fold ing her arms across her chest, looked down, long and closely, upon her unconscious patient's face.
