Excerpt from Mist of Morning

Eads for the front door, tails for the back! David ?ipped a copper into the air and watched it fall with pretended calm. Heads it is! Guess I would have gone to the front door anyway.

This was pure bluff but it served to stiffen his cour age. He knew it was no light thing for a small boy to ring the front door bell at the house of the Widow Rid ley. Boys had tried it before but they had only pulled the handle and then had run away. It was another thing to stand one's ground and deliver a parcel, even when the parcel came from the minister and might be said to be under the protection of the church.

It was a breathlessly hot day. The shadows of the cedar trees lay like dark and pointing fingers over the close cut lawn. The house of the Widow Ridley slum bered in the heat, its wide green shutters closed. But behind those shutters David banged the iron gate and marched boldly up the gravelled walk. His hand was already upon the bell to pull it when the door ?ew open. It opened so silently and so swiftly that it seemed the very worst had happened and that the Widow Rid ley would appear in person. But she didn't. The door opener was not a terrible old woman, with a hooked nose and a very useful cane, but a little girl.
