It ain't the way, said Mr. Harris, impatiently. "Girls like a man o' spirit; not a chap who hangs about without speaking, and looks as though he has been caught stealing the cat's milk. Why don't you go round and see her one afternoon when old Wragg is out?"

About the Author

William Wymark Jacobs is known especially for his sea stories. His familiarity with the wharves and the people who frequented them gave him material for these stories. He was also known for some of his short ghost tales and stories of mystery and the macabre, such as the "Monkey's Paw".
