Poland: The Knight Among Nations – Page 815 by Louis E. Van Norman – Poland – 1908

The novelist had just returned from a walk
with his daughter when I presented myself at

His naturally olive complexion was
flushed with the exercise, and he flourished a
ciupaga (or hatchet-headed mountain-stick)
gleefully as he stepped buoyantly into the room.
