The Saturday Westminster Gazette (Sep 19, 1914) text of Arnold Bennett’s The White Feather is more or less the same as that published in the American Collier’s a month later, but there is one puzzle.
The unpleasant young lady who hands the hero a feather at the end of the tale says (in the Westminster):
“That’s all you’re short of, you Koward! Why don’t you enlist?”
I don’t think I’ve come across that spelling before. Is it just a misprint?
