Description
Excerpt: Chapter 1. A BIRTHDAY DINNER. ?The Little Sons of the Rich? were gathered about the long table in Pettingill?s studio. There were nine of them present, besides Brewster. They were all young, more or less enterprising, hopeful, and reasonably sure of better things to come. Most of them bore names that meant something in the story of New York. Indeed, one of them had remarked, ?A man is known by the street that?s named after him,? and as he was a new member, they called him ?Subway.? The most popular man in the company was young ?Monty? Brewster. He was tall and straight and smooth?shaven. People called him ?clean? looking.? Older women were interested in him because his father and mother had made a romantic runaway match, which was the talk of the town in the seventies, and had never been forgiven. Worldly women were interested in him because he was the only grandson of Edwin Peter Brewster, who was many times a millionaire, and Monty was fairly certain to be his heir barring an absent?minded gift to charity. Younger women were interested for a much more obvious and simple reason: they liked him. Men also took to Monty because he was a good sportsman, a man among men, because he had a decent respect for himself and no great aversion to work.
