The Gentle Giant

Gentle Giant WL

Art by Walter Louderback for “The Manchild” by Maxwell Aley in Good Housekeeping, July 1927

“Charl rode there, quiet, reserved, with the dignity that befitted the man-child of his father’s house, borne on the shoulders of his father’s manservant to visit that retainer’s joss. His heart thumped beneath the blouse of his sailor suit, his eyes were wide and blue, and his clear skin was flushed.”
