“Matthew had read some­where — in one of those hoary lists with which news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines fill their col­umns on quiet days — that mov­ing house was one of the most stress­ful of life’s ex­pe­ri­ences, even if not quite as dis­turb­ing as be­ing the vic­tim of an armed rob­bery or be­ing elected pres­i­dent of an un­sta­ble South Amer­i­can repub­lic. Matthew faced no such threats, of course, but he nev­er­the­less found the prospect of leav­ing In­dia Street for the syl­van sur­round­ings of Nine Mile Burn very wor­ry­ing.’’
