PART II - BOOKS
CHAPTER IX - HOWARD OVERING STURGIS

stepping forward to meet his bride at the altar ! But who is master of his thoughts?'

The above extract will give some idea of the documentary value of Belchamber, of its pictorial quality, and also of its method : the paragraphs of narrative with psychological stings in their tails are typical. It is a melancholy and disastrous story, and yet it exhilarates, for the disasters grow out of one another so naturally that the reader is delighted as by the spectacle of some rare if monstrous growth. When Sainty's brother marries a chorus-girl he thinks that the depths of family shame have been reached, but his own marriage, necessitated by the misalliance, has yet to come, and then the consequences of that marriage . . . until he actually gets to feel that Lady Arthur is not so bad a-sort, after all, whereupon the book closes. No prizes have been handed out, no palms, no butter, and doubtless it is this refusal to compromise which has damaged Bekhamber with the general public. If it had portrayed a good woman, or her spiritual equivalent a moral victory, the sales would have been higher.
On some such note as the above-a note of hardness-it seems most courteous to take leave of this brilliant, sensitive and neglected writer. He did not care for the applause of outsiders. He wrote and he lived for his personal friends.
