Opis: Under the Lone Star - Hayens Herbert
Excerpt from Under the Lone Star: A Story of Revolution in Nicaragua
It as the last night in the year 18544 A.D., and I Colin Foster, crouched shiveringly in the doorway of a tumble-down house in a side street of San Francisco.
The old year was dying hard - the cruel, sad old year that had worked such woe to me - and all the forces in nature had gathered to attend its obsequies. The heavens were obscured by dark clouds; a cold, piercing wind swept the streets with savage fury; the thunder pealed forth, as it were, a solemn death-chant, and occasionally a brilliant, snaky streak of lightning darted through the black curtain, zigzagging in fantastic lines to the earth.
It was bitterly cold, and drawing my poor thin coat tightly across my chest, I crept yet more closely into the angle of the doorway for shelter.
Presently a light springy step sounded on the pavement, and the figure of a man passed before me. The next moment he was struggling fiercely with two other men, who had sprung from a neighbouring recess.
