He called himself master of the ceremonies, and his duty was obviously to provide for the entertainment of the guests.

Then he turned it over and took the edge between his forefinger and his thumb, hesitating whether he would not even at this moment tear it into strips and have done with it. But in the end he cast it upon the table as he had done many a time before and cried in a voice of violence: "No, I can't. That's to own these fellows my masters and I won't. By God I won't!

Miss Ogilvy, who seemed to be entirely under Madame's thumb, obeyed. Now to all intents and purposes they were in a tiny, shadowed room cut off from the main apartment.
