Amid the throng of suburban arrivals volleyed forth from Waterloo Station on a May morning in the year '86, moved a slim, dark, absent-looking young man of one-and-twenty, whose name was Piers Otway. In regard to costume—:blameless silk hat, and dark morning coat with lighter trousers—:the City would not have disowned him, but he had not the City countenance. The rush for omnibus seats left him unconcerned: clear of the railway station, he walked at a moderate pace, his eyes mostly on the ground: he crossed the foot-bridge to Charing Cross, and steadily made his way into the Haymarket, where his progress was arrested by a picture shop.
