"And so you joined the Royal Picts.
What would have happened next Heaven alone knows for we could not have gone on gazing at each other until I backed myself out at the door by way of leave-taking had not Anticlimax arrived in the person of Mr. Anastasius Papadopoulos in his eternal frock-coat. But his gloves were black. As usual he fell on his knees and kissed his lady's hand. Then he rose and greeted me with solemn affability.
