Fuller, Henry Blake: The Chevalier of Pensieri-Vani. v1. 15 Apr 201

Henry Blake Fuller: Born : 1857 Chicago, Illinois, USA: Died : 1929

Excerpt
IT was the Chevalier of Pensieri-Vani who halted his traveling-carnage upon the brow of the Ciminian Forest to look down over the wide-spread Campagna di Roma. Or, to be more accurate, the carriage was not his, but was merely-hired by him from a certain vetturino of Viterbo. Or, again, to be accurate beyond any possibility of cavil or ques-j;tion, it was not a carriage at all, but simply a sort of little gig or chaise, a duepostiy and was neither new, nor neat, nor over-comfortable. But the scrubby little mare went well enough along, and her owner, considerately entreated, had turned out to be sufficiently civil and trustworthy. The effects of the traveler were, in the main, stored away under the seat, and included, so far as might be observed, a sketch-book, a bottle of Orvieto, a vol urne or two on Etruria, and a brown-paper parcel which may have contained, if it be not impertinent to hazard the guess, a trifle in the way of bread and cheese. The Chevalier, I now scarce need confess, was a “ poor gentleman ”—one with much, perhaps, behind him, but very little by him, and not much more before him. But he loved the post-roads of Tuscany, and the soft vowels of the bocca Romana, and every spreading pine-tree and every antique stone of the fair Italian land. He had little money and little prestige; but he was young, and he was happy, too, in an abundance of leisure and a disposition to follow the byways with content. And he was on his way to Rome
