description <p>Amid the blasts of a shrill whistle, caterwauling<br />steel wheels, and complaints<br />whispered in steam, the afternoon train<br />slowly pulls out of Hunter River Station.<br />Left standing in the exaggerated stillness<br />that follows the departure are two gentlemen<br />and three ladies; their trunks,<br />stacked beside them on the platform,<br />mark them as visitors - from the<br />"Boston States," no doubt. The station<br />agent's keen gaze settles on one of the<br />party: a man of above average height,<br />solidly built, with intelligent blue eyes, a<br />graying, neatly trimmed beard, and a<br />ruddy complexion that suggests years of<br />outdoor labour. But the man's bearing,<br />almost regal, and his clothes, obviously<br />from Boston's finest tailors, seem to contradict<br />this last deduction. Surely this is<br />a man who earns his living through<br />intellectual toils, not from the sweat of<br />his brow.</p>
