It was two months after Allegra's wedding-day, and Martin Disney had been warned that the closing hour of the young life he had watched so tenderly was not far off. It might come to-morrow; or it might not come for a week; or the lingering flame might go flickering on, fainting and reviving in the socket, for another month. He must hold himself prepared for the worst. Death might come suddenly at the last, like a thief in the night; or by stealthy, gradual steps, and slowest progress from life to clay. "Glenn Habern was our data processing manager, and he and I had this dream of an interactivecommunications system on which you could communicate back and forth between all the stores and thedistribution centers and the general office. Glenn came up with the idea of using the satellite, and I said,'Let's pursue it without asking anybody.' So we got it to the point where we were ready to make aproposal, and we told Sam. He just listened. He didn't necessarily discourage me. But he didn'tencourage me either. Sam never gets excited about systems.

Smith & Elder, were most liberal in their manner of initiating the work, and were able to make an expectant world of readers believe that something was to be given them for a shilling very much in excess of anything they had ever received for that or double the money. Whether these hopes were or were not fulfilled it is not for me to say, as, for the first few years of the magazine鈥檚 existence, I wrote for it more than any other one person. But such was certainly the prospect 鈥?and how had it come to pass that, with such promises made, the editor and the proprietors were, at the end of October, without anything fixed as to what must be regarded as the chief dish in the banquet to be provided? Only one anxiety troubled Isola at this time, and that was on Allegra's account rather than her own.
