A Chance Acquaintance

Book cover
On the forward promenade of the Saguenay boat which had been advertised to leave Quebec at seven o'clock on Tuesday morning, Miss Kitty Ellison sat tranquilly expectant of the joys which its departure should bring, and tolerantly patient of its delay; for if all the Saguenay had not been in promise, she would have thought it the greatest happiness just to have that prospect of the St. Lawrence and Quebec.
By William Dean Howells, an American realist author and literary critic. In his works he maintained ethic values in counterpoise to the ideology of success. The description of social conditions inextricably intertwine with the feelings of Americans of middle class. His characters are guided by love, ambitions, idealism and temptations.
