DROMENON

I have suffered greatly in my effort to decide what was best to be done. Finally I have resolved to obey the letter of my charge. As his literary executor I am not permitted to suppress documents which the testator considered of vital importance. I do not believe that he was insane. In these circumstances, painful though it is to me-very jealous as I am of our science's prestige in general, and of his reputation in particular-I believe I have no choice. Publish I must. My one comfort lies in the fact, often illustrated in the past in antiquarian studies, that evidence, preserved in the face of ridicule and dismay has not infrequently (after those who bore the obloquy of bearing such undesired witness have died in ignorance of their service) given rise to new inquiries which have revolutionized the science which they served.
It only remains for me to complete my evidence by saying that Sylvester Shelbourne was found, seated at his desk, with the actual manuscript-the text of which follows-before him; the final page uppermost, his pen laid beside: he had evidently died as he read the last page through. Medical and legal inspection succeeded only in disclosing one other fact of any possible significance. The body was found in perfect condition. There was no known cause of death. The fact concerned his surroundings. On his desk there had always stood, on a small ebony plinth, a large crystal ball some four inches in diameter. It was gone. Instead, the desk was covered with a fine dust made of minute quartz fragments. Careful inspection showed, however, that none of these had entered the mouth or nasal passages.
