First Page of Murder Came Tumbling
THE conductor returned my ticket, said we should be five minutes more, monsieur, and moved on down the train. I looked from the window and watched the magnificent scenery roll slowly past. Evening was coming, there was a calm over the pine-covered mountains and a deep stillness on the passing lakes. Clearly, the ideal place for the rest-cure the doctor had ordered. I leaned back against the upholstery and thought of the past few months. The same thing has happened, I know, to other would-be playwrights who think their first play has been accepted. Perhaps I took it harder than was necessary. Certainly I should have listened when, my agent told me to stick to features and short stories. But life being what it is, and agents being what they are, I thought I knew better. I was wrong. I had to discover it the hard way. Things were going well with my other writing the day Max Schofield took an option on the play. He paid me a thousand dollars. The cheque turned my head. It was not exactly the money, for I had several times made more than that on a single story.
