I could barely read the manuscript through the age-stain and mildew and char. It was a manuscript in the most literal sense of the word: merely a collection of papers and scraps of papers, wrapped in brown parcelling, bound with butcher’s twine and sealed in red wax with the image of a scaffold and noose. Lord knows I should have left it alone but I, fool that I am, broke the seal and began to read.
