CHANCE--A TALE IN TWO PARTS 

by Joseph Conrad 

PART I--THE DAMSEL 

CHAPTER ONE--YOUNG POWELL AND HIS CHANCE 

I believe he had seen us out of the window coming off to dine in the
dinghy of a fourteen-ton yawl belonging to Marlow my host and
skipper.  We helped the boy we had with us to haul the boat up on
the landing-stage before we went up to the riverside inn, where we
found our new acquaintance eating his dinner in dignified loneliness
at the head of a long table, white and inhospitable like a snow
bank.
