Excerpt from The Speedwell Boys and Their Racing Auto: Or a Run for the Golden Cup
"Say, fellows! I Look at what's coming!"
"Oh, my eyes! See him wabble! Why, h'ell be over the wall into the river, machine and all, if he doesn't watch out."
"Say, Dan, did you ever see a fellow run a car as bad as Maxey? If we didn't know better wed think he had a fit, declared Billy Speedwell, who sat with his brother, and several of their chums, on a high, grassy bank overlooking the Colasha River and above the road, a mile or two below Riverdale.
"He certainly does make a mess of it," admitted the older Speedwell lad, gazing down the road, as were his friends, at a drab-painted automobile which was approaching them.
They were five boys, all members of the River-dale Outing Club and all rode motorcycles which just now were leaning, in a row, against the bank. The chums had come out after school for a short spin into the country. It was fall, which fact was proven by the brilliant coloring of the leaves.
