  2. Author: Gissing, George
    Title: The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft
    Date: 1903
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "When the green student lamp at our French soireees emitted its warning gurgle, like the lamp of Henry Ryecroft in the Gissing book, Willa would say in melodramatic tones, 'The fatal moment has arrived,' and I [George Seibel] would rise to refill the reservoir from a grimy can of Elaine, a kerosene highly commended for midnight oil, now only a figure of speech."
