coughing dreadfully--all the painful sights of a great city, and here 

you come into it to take your chances. It's too valiant, Miss Stanley, 

too valiant altogether!" 

 

Ann Veronica meditated. She had had two days of employment-seeking now. 

"I wonder if it is." 

 

"It isn't," said Mr. Manning, "that I mind Courage in a Woman--I love 

and admire Courage. What could be more splendid than a beautiful girl 

facing a great, glorious tiger? Una and the Lion again, and all that! 

But this isn't that sort of thing; this is just a great, ugly, endless 

wilderness of selfish, sweating, vulgar competition!" 

 

"That you want to keep me out of?" 

 

"Exactly!" said Mr. Manning. 

 

"In a sort of beautiful garden-close--wearing lovely dresses and picking 

beautiful flowers?" 

 

"Ah! If one could!" 

 

"While those other girls trudge to business and those other women let 

lodgings. And in reality even that magic garden-close resolves itself 

into a villa at Morningside Park and my father being more and more 

cross and overbearing at meals--and a general feeling of insecurity and 

futility." 

 

Mr. Manning relinquished his cup, and looked meaningly at Ann Veronica. 

"There," he said, "you don't treat me fairly, Miss Stanley. My 

garden-close would be a better thing than that."
