Allen, G. (n.d.). The Episode of the Arrest of the Colonel. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Three thousand camels,? I murmured, recalling my dear mother?s lessons; ?all at one fell swoop; not to mention five hundred yoke of oxen, carried off by the Sabeans, then a leading firm of speculative cattle? dealers!? ?Ah, well,? Charles meditated aloud, shaking the ash from his cheroot into a Japanese tray fine antique bronze?work. ?There were big transactions in live?stock even then! Still, Job or no Job, the man is too much for me.? ?The difficulty is,? I assented, ?you never know where to have him.? ?Yes,? Charles mused; ?if he were always the same, like Horniman?s tea or a good brand of whisky, it would be easier, of course; you?d stand some chance of spotting him. But when a man turns up smiling every time in a different disguise, which fits him like a skin, and always apparently with the best credentials, why, hang it all, Sey, there?s no wrestling with him anyhow.?
