Grant, Robert: Unleavened Bread. V1. 31 Jan 2009
Grant was a Boston native and 1873 Harvard University graduate, and received the first Ph.D. in English granted by Harvard. He published his first novel in 1884. His most successful book was Unleavened Bread, which was one of the best selling novels of 1900. His autobiography Fourscore was published in 1934.
Grant was also a probate court judge, appointed in 1893. After he left the bench, Massachusetts Governor Alvan T. Fuller appointed Grant to a commission to review the conviction of Sacco and Vanzetti. The commission recommended that the decision to execute both men be upheld.
Babcock and Selma White were among the last of the wedding guests to take their departure. It was a brilliant September night with a touch of autumn vigor in the atmosphere, which had not been without its effect on the company, who had driven off in gay spirits, most of them in hay-carts or other vehicles capable of carrying a party. Their songs and laughter floated back along the winding country road. Selma, comfortable in her wraps and well tucked about with a rug, leaned back contentedly in the chaise, after the goodbyes had been said, to enjoy the glamour of the full moon. They were seven miles from home and she was in no hurry to get there. Neither festivities nor the undisguised devotion of a city young man were common in her life. Consideration she had been used to from a child, and she knew herself to be tacitly acknowledged the smartest girl in Westfield, but perhaps for that very reason she had held aloof from manhood until now. At least no youth in her neighborhood had ever impressed her as her equal. Neither did Babcock so impress her; but he was different from the rest. He was not shy and unexpressive; he was buoyant and self-reliant, and yet he seemed to appreciate her quality none the less.
