Alonzo Fitz and Other Stories

Excerpt from the book:

“Very well.  Miss Rosannah Ethelton, let me introduce to you my favorite
nephew, Mr. Alonzo Fitz Clarence.  There!  You are both good people, and
I like you; so I am going to trust you together while I attend to a few
household affairs.  Sit down, Rosannah; sit down, Alonzo.  Good-by; I
sha’n't be gone long.”

Alonzo had been bowing and smiling all the while, and motioning imaginary
young ladies to sit down in imaginary chairs, but now he took a seat
himself, mentally saying, “Oh, this is luck!  Let the winds blow now, and
the snow drive, and the heavens frown!  Little I care!”
