Excerpt from Michael Thwaites's Wife
My grandfather, Colonel Edward Thorley Master Michael Thwaites, said the voice of the old Judge by way of whimsical introduction; a gentleman's voice though with slightly nasal modulations, mellowed by time, deep but not sonorous, full and touched sweetly with a pleasing humour. I hope you will like each other.
The boy started, turned quickly, looking confused and resentful for a moment; then he saw his host coming in from the adjoining bed-room, and yielded to the charm of the old gentleman's smiling eyes and shrewd, warmly coloured, clean-shaven features.
