    Excerpt from From the Life: Imaginary Portraits of Some Distinguished Americans

    What business of thought was being carried on under that thatch of gray hair? What was the mind that sat concealed behind those eyes - slow lidded eyes, as impenetrable in their gaze as if they were clear glass frosted on the inner side? Why did he always wear shabby gray clothes? What did he do with his money? Why did he belong to no clubs and go nowhere? - not even to the annual banquet of the Authors' League. Why, with all this unceasing advertisement of his work, was there no advertisement whatever of his personality? Why was there not even any curiosity about him? Why did his books arouse none? Why were they, for all their circulation, so without significance to their day and age, so without concern about its problems, so without in¿uence upon its struggle? Why was he, in short, what he wa3? - as personally inaccessible as 0. Henry, as withdrawn from the modern world in all his works as Maurice Hewlett in his early novels, as shy as Barrie, as fat as Chesterton, as impersonal as if his busy manu factory of fiction were some sort of ¿our-mill over which he presided in his dusty miller's gray.
