The Atlantic Monthly, 1875, Vol. 36 : A Magazine of Literature, Science, Art and Politics (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Atlantic Monthly, 1875, Vol. 36: A Magazine of Literature, Science, Art and Politics Before we had finished our cigars, we heard the keeper undoing the numer ous fastenings of the cell door. With motions quick and noiseless as a cat's, Mick placed his mush plate and spoon on his own side of the cell, so that it might appear that We had each supped by himself, and stretched himself on his mattress. When the keeper came in to remove the supper things, my fellow prisoner was apparently in the midst of a story concerning the breaking of a colt. When he was gone Mick resumed and finished his cigar with great apparent relish. I suppose, said he, after a long si lence, you know I am in here for horse stealing, with a fine prospect of being set up in the tailoring business in the big stone house beyond.
