The Twelve-pound Look

The Twelve-pound Look

A Book by

If quite convenient (as they say about cheques) you are to conceive that the scene is laid in your own house, and that Harry Sims is you. Perhaps the ornamentation of the house is a trifle ostentatious, but if you cavil at that we are willing to re-decorate :you dont get out of being Harry Sims on a mere matter of plush and dados. It pleases us to make him a city man, but (rather than lose you) he can be turned with a scrape of the pen into a K.C., fashionable doctor, Secretary of State, or what you will. We conceive him of a pleasant rotundity with a thick red neck, but we shall waive that point if you know him to be thin. It is that day in your career when everything went wrong just when everything seemed to be superlatively right. In Harry scase it was a woman who did the mischief. She came to him in his great hour and told him -she did not admire him.
