Excerpt from A Hidden Foe

Why Algernon should remain single was a question over which she had puzzled for many years. To tnarry was the natural thing for a man in his position to do 3 it was, in deed, almost a duty. So long as his father was alive she could understand his remaining single, bttt not afterwards. Rumor had never even once coupled his name with that of any lady. He had never shown the slightest preference for one over another, and his sister had once said, in a moment of irritation to her husband, I believe Algernon does not marry because he likes himself so much that he has no liking to spare for anyone else. The thought had occasionally crossed her mind that he might in his younger days, when away from home, have got into some entangle ment, have had some love affair, of which his friends knew nothing, and a year or two after his father's death she would not have been altogether surprised had Algernon at any time announced to her his intention of marrying some stranger of whom she had never heard. But that was ten years ago. Algernon was forty now, and, as everyone agreed, not a marrying man, and the succession of Corbyn Court to Philip Clitheroe seemed assured. Still, as she sat there, the thought of the possibility of such an event as his marrying came afresh into her mind. What she had wished for fifteen years ago would be intolerable now.
