After you left us, I found the last day of the voyage to Liverpool dull enough We have our books and music, though you seem to think we only have our axes and spades. Englishmen don’t claim a monopoly of good manners at Tadmor.
After you left us, I found the last day of the voyage to Liverpool dull enough. Mr. Hethcote did not seem to feel it in the same way: on the contrary, he grew more familiar and confidential in his talk with me. He has some of the English stiffness, you see, and your American pace was a little too fast for him. On our last night on board, we had some more conversation about the Farnabys. We have our books and music, though you seem to think we only have our axes and spades. We see no difference between an American gentleman and an English gentleman.
This book is a great read, as most of Wilkie Collins work is. A great example of a 19th century sensation novel that "shocked" society and critics of the time.

Wilkie Collins's novel was published in 1879 and dedicated to Caroline Graves. the friendless and the lonely, the wounded and the lost'. The novel was not well received and a planned Second Series, showing an unconventional marriage failing because of outside pressures, was never written.
THE FALLEN LEAVES To CAROLINE Experience of the reception of The Fallen Leaves by intelligent readers, who have followed the course of the periodical publication at home and abroad, has satisfied me that the design of the work speaks for itself, and that the scrupulous delicacy of treatment, in certain portions of the story, has been as justly appreciated as I could wish
