It Was Painful
To Me To Have To Decamp In This Way; It Made Me Think Meanly
Of Myself; But If Jack Could Read This And Could Speak His
Mind I Think He Would Acknowledge That My Way Of Bringing The
Connection To An End Was Best For Both Of Us.
I was not the
person, or dog on two legs, he had taken me for, one with a
proper desire to kill things:
I only acted according to my
poor lights. Nothing, then, remains to be said except that
one word which it was not convenient to speak on the windy
morning of my departure - Good-bye Jack.
End of Afoot in England, by W.H. Hudson
