Sorry, no etymologies found.
At the end of the bridge a straggler struck a match and flung it lightly in the river, the disc of his cigar a fire-point in the shadows.
A stocky young man behind the fire-point emerged from the darkness and climbed briskly into the tonneau.
It is the thin, wavering fire-point of all our struggles after purity and eternity.
