LITERARY FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES A Belated Guest

by William Dean Howells

A BELATED GUEST

CASTILI"E EN ANDALUSI"E.

Naar het Fransch van Mme Jane Dieulafoy.

"Ga reizen, en gij zult een vriend ontmoeten, die den vriend vervangt, welken gij verliet," zegt een Oostersch spreekwoord. Zoo ging het ook mij. Met open armen werd ik te Burgos ontvangen door vrienden, die mij van harte welkom heetten in hun midden. De reis was niet lang geweest; doch na Victoria zeer warm. Wij maakten dan ook geen gebruik van de wachtende rijtuigen, doch begaven ons, in de avondkoelte, te voet langs de met boomen beplante kade, die het riviertje de Arlanzon begrenst, naar de bek...

First Page:

Het hedendaagsche Londen.

Hoe Londen 's morgens wakker wordt. [1]

Londen gaat laat naar bed en staat vroeg op. In de weinige uren, die tusschen zijn naar bed gaan en zijn opstaan liggen, brandt er in de hoofdstraten het volle licht en het verwaarloosde kind, dat voorzichtig rondsluipt, kan zich een koning droomen, voor wien al die verlichting is ontstoken. Hoog geladen wagens uit de graafschappen, die nog tot Londen behooren, waggelen voort op zeurige manier, terwijl de voerlui op hun paarden vertrouwen, dat ze zelf wel den weg zullen weten ...
