Description

Excerpt from A Serpent's Feast: Pen Pictures of Actual Life in New York Tenderloin The facts contained in this narrative are not jotted down with any precision as to dates, hav ing been copied by me from numerous notes taken during the existence of one of the most notorious clubs which ever sprang into existence in the City of New York. As a charter member of the club, I was con versant with everything that was going on there. And, as I generally had the greatness thrust upon me of recording the proceedings of the more inter esting of the meetings, the only trouble I have had in putting the narrative together was in weed ing out a lot of extraneous matter which would have interested no one, and would have marred the faint attempt at proper sequence which I have made in forming the narrative.
