Then came a shining glimpse of the North Sea; then a rim of green islands, rising on the right to high heather hills; then the land- locked waters and the grey ships now getting blurred and less distinct; then some portions of the green land that sloped up to where I lay; and among these fields, and not far away from me, the steep roof and gable- top of a grey, old- fashioned house.- "The Spy in Black", J. Storer Clouston.
