Excerpt from Noontide Essays I had been spending one of the most delightful and exciting afternoons I ever remember. Fond as I am of pictures, and unwilling to miss visiting any of the annual exhibitions, yet I find a gallery a most trying place. My frame is generally bowed with fatigue, my legs ache wofully - long before my eyes are satisfied with the feast. Apart from the physical strain of standing about for hours, there is something in the motionless, warm air of most picture-shows that takes it out of you; then it is cold outside - you carry in with you a thick overcoat that soon weighs like lead, there is nowhere to deposit it, you must bear it about till you are half cooked; and in addition to all this, there is the too plentiful presence of your fellow-creatures.
