From "The Magic Egg":
The pretty little theater attached to the building of the
Unicorn Club had been hired for a certain January afternoon by Mr.
Herbert Loring, who wished to give therein a somewhat novel
performance, to which he had invited a small audience consisting
entirely of friends and acquaintances. Loring was a handsome fellow
about thirty years old, who had traveled far and studied much. He
had recently made a long sojourn in the far East, and his friends
had been invited to the theater to see some of the wonderful things
he had brought from that country of wonders. As Loring was a
club-man, and belonged to a family of good social standing, his
circle of acquaintances was large, and in this circle a good many
unpleasant remarks had been made regarding the proposed
entertainment -- made, of course, by the people who had not been
invited to be present. Some of the gossip on the subject had
reached Loring, who did not hesitate to say that he could not talk
to a crowd, and that he did not care to show the curious things he
had collected to people who would not thoroughly appreciate them.
He had been very particular in regard to his invitations.
