About this product
- DescriptionStrether's first question, when he reached the hotel, was about his friend; yet on his learning that Waymarsh was apparently t to arrive till evening he was t wholly disconcerted. A telegram from him bespeaking a room only if t isy, reply paid, was produced for the enquirer at the office, so that the understanding they should meet at Chester rather than at Liverpool remained to that extent sound. The same secret principle, however, that had prompted Strether t absolutely to desire Waymarsh's presence at the dock, that had led him thus to postpone for a few hours his enjoyment of it, w operated to make him feel he could still wait without disappointment. They would dine together at the worst, and, with all respect to dear old Waymarsh-if t even, for that matter, to himself-there was little fear that in the sequel they shouldn't see eugh of each other. The principle I have just mentioned as operating had been, with the most newly disembarked of the two men, wholly instinctive-the fruit of a sharp sense that, delightful as it would be to find himself looking, after so much separation, into his comrade's face, his business would be a trifle bungled should he simply arrange for this countenance to present itself to the nearing steamer as the first te, of Europe. Mixed with everything was the appre-hension, already, on Strether's part, that it would, at best, throughout, prove the te of Europe in quite a sufficient degree.
