CHAPTER IX - A WAX CYLINDER

There was, however, one of his own countrymen at Headquarters, though even he could only make him understand with difficulty. The young fellow was a peasant and his dialect completely baffled the other, who always referred to him as " the Moujik."
It was evident that his eagerness was not due to his understanding what might be expected of him ; but rather because of a fanaticism which possessed him, coupled with a sense of gratitude for their befriending him.

He was so devoted to it that he would even collect the bits of the wax cylinder, after they had been smashed by Seventyseven, and secrete them away. No one bothered about this, because they were of no use now that they were
