It was Robert who padded solemnly across the little bridge, waded into the pond to the culvert's egress, and wrenched the grating from its mouth, setting free a rush of mud and water from which he lifted out, first, Nicandra's dog (exhausted and bleeding but quite ready to bite), then Lally, every stitch she wore soaked and clinging close as a swimsuit to her solid child-size body.

St. Clair McKelway, The New Yorker, April 30, 1955. The New Yorker
