There was an unconscious air of physical lordliness about him, and he looked such a swell- not the black- clothed, clean- shaved, great display of white collar- and- cuffs swell appertaining to the office and city street, but of the easy sunburnt squatter type of swelldom, redolent of the sun, the saddle, the wide open country- a man who is a man, utterly free from the least suspicion of effeminacy, and capable of earning his bread by the sweat of his brow- with an arm ready and willing to save in an accident.- "My Brilliant Career", Miles Franklin.
