Excerpt from Sir Jasper's Tenant: A Novel There were many versions of this story, which may have been somewhat legendary in its character. It related to a noble race which was extinct, and to a time in which men wore fantastically frizzed periwigs upon their heads, and carried slim rapiers at their sides, always conveniently ready for any little impromptu in the way of an assassination in the badly lighted streets, or a duel to the death in some lonely chamber with locked doors. If you had been an amateur artist on the lookout for a subject for a water-colour drawing, scarcely anything could have been better for you than the Hermitage, lying low in a deep hollow of Scarsdale wood, with trackless depths of fern stretching away to the left of its grim walls, and a still black pool lying to the right of the Old ivy-grown gate surmounted by a stone escutcheon, and marking the boundary of a garden that was no more.
