Dog and Duck, by Arthur Machen

Note

All these essays and chronicles, with the exception of the last, ‘The Art of Unbelief,’ appeared in The Lyons Mail. The first article, ‘Dog and Duck,’ has been revised and considerably enlarged since its original appearance in print.

‘The Art of Unbelief was returned to me by the Editor of The Lyons Mail, with a few trenchant criticisms:

‘I cannot deal with the enclosed . . . I am afraid my readers would not understand it . . . a mass of dissertation, some of which I would not ask our linotype operators to translate.’

Such are the amenities of that highway which Sir Philip Gibbs has so delightfully called ‘The Street of Adventure.’

There are adventures and adventures, and some adventures are . . . muddy.
