Chalmers Comes Back (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Chalmers Comes Back For some days he had been conscious of a new ele ment that had begun to work in him. It was like the rising of sap in a tree, like the soft continuous pressure of force that pushes Open folded buds, like the silent waveless advance of a tide in a landward inlet of the sea. At first it frightened him; then he became curious about it. He noticed that he slept now without the dreams that had so long tortured him, and woke with a sense of well-being. He lifted his hands, not with the old caution, but with abrupt movements, finding pleasure in the act. He found his lips, which had so long been hardened in a stiff line of endurance, curved and relaxed in a smile. A weight was lifted from his heart; surely it was beab ing in a new way, with a fuller rhythm. Then. At last, on an unforgettable and splendid morning, he me to the full knowledge or himself. He was Captain John uialmers of the Field Artillery, who had been reported missing, God only knew how many months ago.
