Excerpt from The Standpatter: A Chronicle of Democracy

It was Bettina Brigham who called a halt. Her three companions looked on wonderingly as that energetic young woman, whose strong guiding hand and quick perceptions had brought them safely up the difficult in cline, swung back the door of the limousine and stepped lightly to the ground.

It took alertness on the part of her associates to keep pace with Miss Brigham’s mental operations. She had a briskness that was half a challenge, an effervescence that had to bubble up and occasionally spill over in order to prevent an explosion. She was now scrutinizing for the hundredth time the rough pencil sketch of the route they had just traversed.
