PART I - THE PRESENT
CHAPTER VIII - HAPPINESS!

O BEAUTIFUL book ! 1 What would the art critics, whose rightful property you are, say about you ? They would not say ' 0 beautiful book ! ' for they have the gift of words and can state with precision which of your pages are Illustrations and which Significant Forms. 0 fifty pages, each lovelier than its brother, so gorgeous in your colours, so moving in your theme that the beholder falls a-doting, and phrases of music come into his ear, and quotations from poetry to his lips ! Your scene is an, island-a kingless continent sinless as Eden, and no one lives upon it but Adam and Eve.

` Qui pourrait dire comment Macao et Cosmage vinrent dans cette ile, comment la destinee put les unir ? Personne ! Ni toi, ni moi, nous ne le saurons jamais.'

They have lived there as long as they can remember amongst birds and flowers ; they have ridden giraffes and turtles, and danced in the shades and lights of the forest ; they have played by the cataract at sunset ; and at night, when all the island except its stars became azure, they have slept beneath plumed trees, while their innocence enclosed them in a shell of white light, in a magical fruit that gleamed in the highways of the darkness. New joys in the morning. By listening to the song of the birds Cosmage learned how to sing, and by watching their nests Macao learned how to build a house. They made a path through the wood, and found at the end of it the sea, and the sea opened her treasures to them-great fish that slithered, and scuttling crabs. Macao and Cosmage were not dignified, they had not the faked simplicity of Genesis or Greece, but he was chinless, like all truly good men, and she goggle-eyed and black. They neither toiled nor posed, nor did they give thanks.

1 The book was Macao et Cosmage, by Edy. Legrand. I think it is still obtainable. Published by the N.R.F. 36
