"Does the paper give any description of the missing man, sir?" I
"Yes; quite an exhaustive description. Indeed, it is exhaustive
to the verge of impropriety, considering that the man may possibly
turn up alive and well at any moment. It seems that he has an old
Pott's fracture of the left ankle, a linear, longitudinal scar on
each knee -- origin not stated, but easily guessed at -- and that
he has tattooed on his chest in vermilion a very finely and
distinctly executed representation of the symbolical Eye of Osiris
-- or Horus or Ra, as the different authorities have it. There
certainly ought to be no difficulty in identifying the body. But we
will hope that it won't come to that. . . ."
