A Touch of Sun, and Other Stories 1903
by Foote, Mary Hallock

Overview -
Excerpt: ...He touched the book-holder lightly on the arm, to turn her away from the sun. Her shadow fell across the open page; their backs were to the wagon. So they stood a full half-minute, -Thane seeing nothing, hearing his heart beat preposterously in the silence. "Why don't you praise my sign-posts?" asked Daphne nervously. "See my beautiful distance, -one straight line!" "I have changed my plans a little," said Thane. Daphne closed the book. "I shall see you again in Boise. This is good-by-for three days.

He put little faith in Thane's urgent business (that no one had heard of till that moment) calling him to Boise in three days. Of what use was it going down to the placers only to turn round and come back again? So Thane thought, and proposed they drive forward to Bliss.
