Excerpt from Lady Baby, Vol. 3 of 3: A Novel
The five minutes having passed, Maud began to pick her way back again towards Samuel Foote's shop - not indeed retracing her former steps, but taking a direction which led her to the further side of the building which he inhabited. There was no window at that side, and cautiously creeping along the wall She sharply turned the corner, and without a. Pause or a knock raised the latch of the door. To her surprise, she found herself confronted by nothing but the sleek and dazzling countenance of New York, who still sat squatted in the centre of the table. Of Samuel Foote there appeared in the first instance to be no trace; but as she slowly advanced into the room, Maud noticed an open door which She had not before observed, prob ably owing to its being papered like the walls.
