Novelette by Henry James, published in 1898.

A girl telegraph clerk who despises her complacent suitor, Mr. Mudge, is fascinated by the lives of her wealthy patrons, particularly by the liaison of Lady Bradeen and young Captain Everard, of which she learns through their telegrams. When her friend Mrs. Jordan asks her to become a business partner, she hesitates to accept this offer or Mr. Mudge's proposal. She helps Everard to avoid a scandal by producing a copy of an intercepted telegram, and her brief association with him ends when Lord Bradeen dies and the lovers are able to marry. Mrs. Jordan's offer is withdrawn, and the girl quickly settles her problems by accepting Mr. Mudge.
