Hartley and Robbins meet one another in a building so near to the railroad that the smell of coal unceasingly wafts in through the open windows. A detective enters the room where they are chatting and tells Hartley that he has found 'the address' of the girl. Who is this girl and why is she so special that Hartley promises her everything to persuade her to go with him? O. Henry gives us the answer to the mystery in an explosive surprise, even by his own standards.

American short story master O. Henry is best known for his pithy, witty scores and surprise endings. In doing so he made commonplace experiences extraordinary and memorable. His work has been immortalised in the popular 1952 film 'O. Henry's Full House' starring Fred Allen, Anne Baxter, Marilyn Monroe and Jeanne Crain.

William Sidney Porter (1862-1919), known simply as O. Henry, was a prolific American author of humorous literary pieces. His fame came exceptionally quickly and he became a bestselling author of short story collections. Perhaps the most famous of these are, 'Cabbages and Kings,' 'The Voice of the City' and 'Strictly Business.' The immensity of O. Henry's impact on the American short story genre for time to come is evidenced by the fact an annual award in his name is given out each year in the United States. O. Henry's work is a must read for fans of Hemingway, Guy de Maupassant and Anton Chekhov.
