Excerpt from Ten O'clock: A Lecture

It was a grey, stormy summer day, and as the clergyman said the last prayers, and the coffin was lowered, the thick London atmosphere wrapped the green enclosure in the magic and mystery that Whistler was the first to see and to reveal. The grave was made by the Side of his Wife under a wall covered with clematis. A low railing, like the trellis in the garden at the Rue du Bac, with ?owers growing over it, Shuts in the little unmarked plot of ground Where Whistler, the greatest artist and most striking personality of the nineteenth century, lies at rest in a remote corner of the London he loved, not far from the house, and nearer the grave, of Hogarth, who had been to him the greatest English master from the days Of his boyhood in St. Petersburg.
