Excerpt from The Wane of an Ideal: A Novel
There was not a soul in all Fontanetto and the neighborhood who did not know the "little doctor." For twenty years he had been known by that name, ever since he had come there as the parish doctor. He was then a young man of about thirty, gallant, gay, and the best of good company. To distinguish him from his predecessor, the new-comer was dubbed with the nickname of "Dottorino" in some sort as a pet name, he was such an engaging man, and the name had clung to him ever since, in spite of years and the changes in his person, which entered a crying protest against the diminutive.
When I first knew him he may have been fifty, tall, stout, and burly.
