(1881)
A novel by

 
Excerpt from Stanley Brereton

IN the private parlour of the great banking house in the Strand, two of the partners were seated one morning, a few years ago, at a table covered with letters and accounts, most of which had been examined and put aside, but a few were left that required attention.

Both these gentlemen, though shrewd men of business, had easy, agreeable manners, and were remarkably courteous to all brought into contact with them. Mr. Moseley, the senior partner, who was rather stout, and rosy-cheeked, with grey hair, had a very pleasant expression of countenance nor could anything be said against his partner, Mr. Vere, but the latter was decidedly the gravest of the two, and had a very keen look when making an inquiry. They were discussing an important matter that had just come before them, when a lady and gentleman were ushered into the room by a clerk, and announced as Lady Starkey and Sir John Lambert.

The two bankers immediately arose, and shook hands with Sir John, who presented her ladyship to them, while the sedate clerk placed seats for the new-comers near the table.
