Clarence by Bret Harte( Book )

1 edition published in 1895 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He had been married scarcely a year, yet even in the illusions of the honeymoon the woman, older than himself, and the widow of his old patron, had half unconsciously reasserted herself, and slipped back into the domination of her old position. As Clarence Brant, President of the Robles Land Company, and husband of the rich widow of John Peyton, of the Robles Ranche, mingled with the outgoing audience of the Cosmopolitan Theatre, at San Francisco, he elicited the usual smiling nods and recognition due to his good looks and good fortune. But as he hurriedly slipped through the still lingering winter's rain into the smart coupe that was awaiting him, and gave the order "Home," the word struck him with a peculiarly ironical significance. His home was a handsome one, and lacked nothing in appointment and comfort, but he had gone to the theatre to evade its hollow loneliness. Nor was it because his wife was not there, for he had a miserable consciousness that her temporary absence had nothing to do with his homelessness. The distraction of the theatre over that dull, vague, but aching sense of loneliness which was daily growing upon him returned with greater vigor

When the twenty-year-old master at the Indian Spring country school took charge of his duties in this rural California community, one of his moves was to curtail the embarrassing and disruptive school-hours "courtship" between students Cressy, sixteen, and nineteen-year-old Seth. The conference with the parents resulted in the withdrawal of the lovers, and possibly the good-will of the families. But now that Cressy returned to school, had the master's protest been accepted, or had the engagement itself been broken off?

In the Carquinez woods by Bret Harte( Book )

2 editions published between 1883 and 1896 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sun was going down on the Carquinez Woods. The few shafts of sunlight that had pierced their pillared gloom were lost in unfathomable depths, or splintered their ineffectual lances on the enormous trunks of the redwoods. For a time the dull red of their vast columns, and the dull red of their cast-off bark which matted the echoless aisles, still seemed to hold a faint glow of the dying day. But even this soon passed
