The Ancient Grudge  (1905) 
by Arthur Stanwood Pier

"The Ancient Grudge" is the irksome sense of obligation felt by one young man to another who has saved his life as a boy, and in the main the novel is a study of the divergent temperaments of these two men. They are students at Harvard together, live in the same town, love the same girl, [...] To some extent the story deals with labor questions, but, while it presents some phases of the problem in an interesting way, it does not go very deeply into the subject. There are several well-drawn minor characters, a quiet sense of humor, and a refined social atmosphere; the weakest point is construction. —From a review in the Nation, October 1905.
