Excerpt from Ten Beautiful Years

All his pictures that season had been well received and fairly well hung; not nearly so well, however, as Margaret's. It seemed as if hanging committees, for once, had suddenly developed unexpected discrimina tion. They gave her steadily lighted places, neither too high nor too low, her perspectives taken into account in a most miraculous way. And Margaret had sold; more than all, Margaret had taken a first prize, and once again a third prize.

Here his mental picture became grim and distorted. Could he ever forget how, for one dreadful hour, he had forgotten to make jubilee with her?

He had been awarded no prize, and not one of his glowing canvases had been sold. Then, bitter chagrin and a terrible doubt of his own ability so racked him that he grew afraid to let her see his face. With a fishing trip for excuse, he had again left her till he could regain his self-command. Three days later, he was so sore and smarting that even now he did not care to speculate upon what might have been the end. It was in the midst of his despair that a blessed letter came. In it the trustees of a well-known art museum offered him a thousand dollars for his picture exhibited that year. When he took Margaret into his arms again, she did not suspect that his first thought was one of thank fulness for an escape from possible shipwreck. She was only wildly happy over his success.
