For a whole day my companion had rambled about the room with his chin upon his chest and his brows knitted, charging and recharging his pipe with the strongest black tobacco, and absolutely deaf to any of my questions or remarks. Fresh editions of every paper had been sent up by our news agent, only to be glanced over and tossed down into a corner.

When, therefore, he suddenly announced his intention of setting out for the scene of the drama it was only what I had both expected and hoped for."
