Description

Excerpt from The Stranger at the Feast He was looking for a certain name. It was not to be his first visit of the morning by any means. He had already called on three of the largest importing firms and learned the absolute futility of a beggar in search of a king's ransom. The merchants he managed to see merely glanced at him, and promptly measured the goods he had to sell by his need instead of at their value. He was not angry. A horse ridden by a well-dressed man with his pockets full of money is worth twice - nay, ten times - as much as the same horse ridden by a starving tatterdemalion with a tongue black from thirst. It was an unpleasant truth, but its hoary age demanded respect. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
