Illustration for Arthur Conan Doyle's “Adventure of the Naval Treaty,” p. 308.

Passage illustrated: “'Then take the treaty and lock it up there. I shall give directions that you may remain behind when the others go, so that you may copy it at your leisure without fear of being overlooked. When you have finished, relock both the original and the draft in the desk, and hand them over to me personally to-morrow morning.'”
