I turned back away from the park and struck into Park Road, intending to skirt the park, went along under the shelter of the terraces, and got a view of this stationary, howling Martian from the direction of St.
Far away, through a gap in the trees, I saw a second Martian, as motionless as the first, standing in the park towards the Zoological Gardens, and silent.
'And so he would, if he were lord of Ashby Park--there's not a doubt of it: but the fact is, I MUST have Ashby Park, whoever shares it with me.'
I can't tell you all about it now, for there's Matilda, I see, in the park, and I must go and open my budget to her.
It's the first place after you leave the park, and must have grown while Spofford Avenue was still a country road.
They saw it as they walked up the pine-fringed hill from the park. Just on the crest, where Spofford Avenue petered out into a plain road, was a little white frame house with groups of pines on either side of it, stretching their arms protectingly over its low roof.
For several nights, I seemed to hear, both in the park
and out of the park
, round the pavilion, unusual sounds, sometimes footsteps, at other times the cracking of branches.
The Grey Cottage, which stood entrenched, as it were, in a square of stiff, high thorn-hedges, was so close under the pines and palisades of the Park that Kidd at first mistook it for the Park Lodge.
"To Pendragon Park, sir," said the servant, rather sombrely, and began to close the door.

They expected to have a better view of the house from that part of the park
, and will be thinking how it may be improved; and nothing of that sort, you know, can be settled without you."
His fare entered, and the cab whirled into the cool fastnesses of the park
along the shortest homeward cuts.
Below, every point of vantage bristled with spectators, the roofs of the towering buildings, the public squares, the active ferry boats, and every favourable street intersection had its crowds: all the river piers were dense with people, the Battery Park
was solid black with east-side population, and every position of advantage in Central Park
and along Riverside Drive had its peculiar and characteristic assembly from the adjacent streets.
Crawley sent over a choice parcel of tracts, to prepare her for the change from Vanity Fair and Park
