Tales and Fantasies, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Tales and Fantasies, Vol. 1 One evening in March they were driven by a sharp fall of sleet into an Oyster Bar in the imme diate neighbourhood of Leicester Square. Colonel Geraldine was dressed and painted to represent a person connected with the Press in reduced circum stances; while the Prince had, as usual, travestied his appearance by the addition Of false whiskers and a pair of large adhesive eyebrows. These lent him a shaggy and weather-beaten air, which, for one of his urbanity, formed the most impenetrable disguise. Thus equipped, the commander and his satellite sipped their brandy and soda in security. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
