He will be full of regrets and apologies to our Government, but that won't help Threewit or Frank any." "Don't you think he's bluffing? Pasquale hasn't a thing against either of them. He surely wouldn't murder them in cold blood." "I don't know whether he is or not. But it's up to me to sit in and take cards. They went down to Noche Buena on my account. I'm going down on theirs."

He grasped the Ambassador's hand and embraced him with ardor. "Magnificent! Superb!" The Ambassador was no less overjoyed. "Young man," he said, "we owe you the deepest apologies.
