Excerpt from Ezra Hardman, M. An;, Of Wayback College: And Other Stories Hardman told his wife that they would need at least a week to get fairly settled in their new quarters at the University, and Mrs. Hardman regretfully subtracted that amount if time from the days she was so covetously hoarding. When the hour of their departure actually arrived, and she had watched the expressman take away their few trunks and boxes, and had tied the children's hats securely under their firm, round chins, her forced composure deserted her, and she sobbed as if her heart would break. Hardman stood looking down at her with masculine perplexity. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
