This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 62 pages of information about An Old Town By the Sea.

Peculiarity in any kind requires encouragement in order to reach flower.  The increased facilities of communication between points once isolated, the interchange of customs and modes of thought, make this encouragement more and more difficult each decade.  The naturally inclined eccentric finds his sharp outlines rubbed off by unavoidable attrition with a larger world than owns him.  Insensibly he lends himself to the shaping hand of new ideas.  He gets his reversible cuffs and paper collars from Cambridge, Massachusetts, the scarabaeus in his scarf-pin from Mexico, and his ulster from everywhere.  He has passed out of the chrysalis state of Odd Stick; he has ceased to be parochial; he is no longer distinct; he is simply the Average Man.
