'But, O, Finsbury, what are we to do with it? walled the artist, laying a clutching hand upon the lawyer's arm. 'Do with it? repeated Michael. 'Bury it in one of your flowerbeds, and erect one of your own statues for a monument.

A pallid, black-haired woman with pendent earrings a woman who rather resembled Anna Zanidov was playing a sea-piece by MacDowell in the light of a tall lamp.
