And after a few more words of greeting, the Doctor beckoned to Sam, and gave the guest over to his hands. Thereupon the Chinaman slippered through tiled passageways to the court, where the Stranger, caught by the beauty and peace so well hidden, lingered a while. The little space within the wings was filled with flowers as far as the yellow water of the pool and the marble bench. In the centre of the court wasan old gray fountain--sent from Verona by a Brother--from which the water dropped and ran away among the flower beds to the pool.

About the Author
Robert Herrick (1868-1938) was a University of Chicago English professor from 1893 to 1923. Herrick wrote realistic social novels about the conflict between professional and personal values in American capitalistic society - in the tradition of realism, but influenced by Hawthorne and New England Puritan tradition on the one hand, and the naturalism of the Chicago packing houses on the other. Chicago was the city in which he lived for 30 years and which he viewed with both fascination and revulsion.
