Matthew Diamond took no notice of the words. Perhaps he did not hear them. "I am not fit to go to evening parties," he continued. "The very wax-lights dazzle me. I feel like a bat or an owl."

As I look back over the interval and remember how intimate we were, it seems odd to me that we should have known each other for no more than six years.
