Collins, C. (n.d.). The Compensation House. Retrieved from

Excerpt: ?There?s not a looking?glass in all the house, sir. It?s some peculiar fancy of my master?s. There isn?t one in any single room in the house.? It was a dark and gloomy?looking building, and had been purchased by this Company for an enlargement of their Goods Station. The value of the house had been referred to what was popularly called ?a compensation jury,? and the house was called, in consequence, The Compensation House. It had become the Company?s property; but its tenant still remained in possession, pending the commencement of active building operations. My attention was originally drawn to this house because it stood directly in front of a collection of huge pieces of timber which lay near this part of the Line, and on which I sometimes sat for half an hour at a time, when I was tired by my wanderings about Mugby Junction.
