Excerpt from Mustard Leaves, or a Glimpse of London Society
Not many years ago Squire Gordon had him self been the central figure among these rural politicians, but now a mighty monument in the hundred-year old church-yard records his many virtues, beneath which he rests, after a busy, honest life. During the two years which have elapsed since his death, his widow and child have remained quietly in the Northern village, affording much interest, and exciting no little disapproval among the good people of Ash ton, for their manner of life differs in many respects from that of those around them, a fact human nature is prone to resent in its fellows.
