Illustration for Arthur Conan Doyle's “Adventure of the Greek Interpreter,” p. 299.

Passage illustrated: “The man with a convulsive effort tore the plaster from his lips, and screaming out 'Sophy! Sophy!' rushed into the woman's arms. Their embrace was but for an instant, however, for the younger man seized the woman and pushed her out of the room, while the elder easily overpowered his emaciated victim, and dragged him away through the other door.”
