The New York World described the transaction between the government and the Morgan Company as a "bunco" game, and charged that Cleveland had dishonest, dishonorable and immoral reasons for bringing about the transaction and that he did it for a "consideration."

'Will any fellow come upstairs and play a game of billiards? said Miles Grendall rising from his chair. Then he walked slowly out of the room, leaving Sir Felix to take what revenge he pleased.

The Spanish minister had naturally insisted in his demands because he had not been properly met at first.

There had been a family meeting in the preceding year when the Dorsetshire property had been sold under a recent Act of Parliament.

Only the desperately zealous or the morbidly curious would endure two hours in those wooden chairs, and he sat in the front row of this hectic body, somehow made a party to a transaction for which he had the utmost contempt.
