CHAPTER VI - A VISIT TO BOULOGNE

AND now we must take a quick dip into the past-to a day several years before.
When the channel steamer berthed at Boulogne this particular day a man might have been seen hurrying down the gangway, almost as soon as it was run out. He was not delayed by any crowd of passengers, for the crossing had been very bad, and most of the others were trying to pull themselves together before landing. The bad weather evidently accounted for his being so well wrapped up ; for he wore a thick frieze coat with a big woollen scarf over his mouth and throat.
He walked quickly along the quay to the " Pont " which spans the neck of the harbour, and crossing the bridge, he made his way to the main thoroughfare, where he turned to the right. Very soon he arrived at a street which crossed the tram-lines at right angles. The rue de l'Empereur, as it is called, is a broad street of red brick houses. About half-way down, on the left, was a small hotel, Le Meurice. Here our visitor paused before he entered the swing-doors. He was evidently a stranger to the place-though he had f°und it apparently without any difficulty. He did not pause long outside however.
" Monsieur du Valle, s'il vous plait," he said to the reception-clerk.
He Ah ! Monsieur, Numero vingt-cinq. Pardon!" signed to a boy to show the stranger to the lift.
