Illustration for Arthur Conan Doyle's “The Adventure of the Stockbroker's Clerk,” p. 229.

Passage illustrated: "'Some woman came talking something or other about Lord St. Simon to me—seemed to me from the little I heard as if he had a little secret of his own before marriage also—but I managed to get away from her and soon overtook Frank. We got into a cab together, and away we drove to some lodgings he had taken in Gordon Square, and that was my true wedding after all those years of waiting.'"
