Beyond the Wall - Ambrose Bierce - Horror

Many years ago, on my way from Hong Kong to New York, I passed a week in San Francisco.

Chief of these, I hoped, was Mohun Dampier, an old schoolmate with whom I had held a desultory correspondence which had long ceased, as is the way of correspondence between men.

In the stress of privation and the need of effort I might sometimes forget the sombre secret ever baffling the conjecture that it compels.
