“it was only when he heard one mutter to the other, ‘I don’t like it Myer- they’ve scored too soon’ and the other reply, ‘I know, I know’; that he understood the significance of their sitting hunched and quiet amid the tumult…They were doom-laden. They had highly developed imaginations of disaster. They feared pride and presumption.”
