A BOOK ABOUT FEAR



By

ARTHUR CHRISTOPHER BENSON

1914

"Thus they went on till they came to about the middle of the
galley, and then Christiana said, 'Methinks I see something yonder
on the read before us, a thing of such a shape such as I have not
seen.' Then said Joseph, 'Mother, what is it?' 'An ugly thing,
Child, an ugly thing,' said she. 'But, Mother, what is it like?'
said he. ''Tis like I cannot tell what,' said she. And now it was
but a little way off. Then said she, 'It is nigh.'"
