William Le Queux
Contained first in the collection and then in the collection .
On an evening walk in the Whitechapel area, Anton Prehznev happens upon "an aged, decrepit, blind man" who turns out to be a Russian exile, recently in the country with his young daughter. Befriending him, Prehznev grows to become closer to him but the more he learns, the more mysterious the old man and young girl become.
