Abstract

In one of his theatrical reviews, Max Beerbohm gives an impression of Johnston Forbes-Robertson rendering a line from a play of Henry James, The High Bid. Captain Yule, an impecunious philanthropist, returns to repurchase his ancestral home at the cost of marriage to the daughter of his opulent tenant. Chivers, the butler, as ancestral as the mansion, is interrogated by Captain Yule.
