Excerpt from Overdue

In Curzon Street, Woolsborough, stands a block of buildings containing seven shops. These shops are owned by men who style themselves Universal Providers. The honest term "tradesman" seems disagreeable to them; so they call themselves general merchants. Nevertheless, for cash, they will sell you drugs, wines, fish, ironmongery, meat, game, and other commodities, including coffins. If they kept but one of these seven shops they would not be able to elude the terminology of society. They would be absolutely and helplessly tradesmen, or to sink lower yet, shopkeepers. But seven shops, it seems, may form the pillars or supports of a social platform from which those who occupy it can proclaim themselves general merchants.

One of these general merchants was Mr. Spencer Stanhope. He was a man of hard appearance; hard of face, hard of grip of hand without cordiality, hard in business, hard in his views of life, and he had a dead-black hard eye like the head of a nail. He was the son of a man who had died accountant of a bank, and his mother was the daughter of a clergyman.
