These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Gem Collector: The years fell away from Jimmy, and he was back in New York, standing at the corner of Forty-second Street with half an hour to wait because the fear of missing her had sent him there too early; sitting in Central Park with her while the squirrels came down and begged for nuts; walking-Damn Spike! ...He speedily made friends, among them Lady Jane Blunt, the still youthful widow of a man about town, who, after trying for several years to live at the rate of ten thousand per annum with an income of two and a half, had finally given up the struggle and drank himself peacefully into the tomb, leaving her in sole charge of their one son, Spencer Archbald....Lady Jane, who had fallen in love with the abbey some years before, during a visit to the neighborhood, had prevailed upon her square-shouldered lord to turn his twinkling gray eye in that direction, and the captain of industry, with the remark that here, at last, was a real bully old sure-fire English stately home, had sent down builders and their like, not in single spies, but in battalions, with instructions to get busy....Im afraid, said Spennie in an abject manner, as they left the station, that it will be rather a bit of a frightful squash-what I mean to say is, I hardly think we shall all find room in the auto. ...Im on my way to stay with a man Ive only known a few days, and his people, whom I dont know at all, and a bunch of other guests, whom Ive never heard of, and his uncle, whos a sort of human icicle, and his aunt, who makes you feel like thirty cents directly she starts to talk to you, and the family watchdog, who will probably bite me.
