How wholesome it all was!For years I was one of the authors many worshipers from afar, with no thought of ever meeting him- and then chance brought us together. I had no special knowledge of birds, but I dealt with outdoor themes in my own books, and I was a countryman and something of a dirt farmer, just as he was.

We had both traveled in the British Isles and in France, and I was more or less intimately acquainted with various persons in whom he was interested. We continued to see each other rather frequently, and I illustrated two collections of his essays, and he was the subject of some writing I did for periodicals.Never was there a better host, and if I made any untoward interruption in the tenor of his day-to-day routine he did not allow me to be aware of it.

In conversation his originality, his lively interest in many things, and the wit and wisdom of his comments were unequaled in my experience.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
