Excerpt from Belford's Monthly Magazine, Vol. 2: A Magazine of Literature and Art; June-November, 1877
When Nicholas left The Crown and Crust, on the evening of his encounter with the three rogues, he had only the shadow of an idea of what he was going to do with them, on the... fulfilment of their promise to call upon him the following morning. Of one thing he was sure: he cherished no resentments against them he desired to do them good. How to accomplish his purpose was the question which the re¿ections and inventions of the night were, in some imperfect or tentative way, to answer He had the men at an advantage, which he did not intend, in any way, to relinquish. He saw that they were to be treated with a firm hand. He supposed that they would endeavour to overreach him, and he had never felt himself so stimulated and excited as during the night which preceded their appointed visit. Indeed, he slept but little 5 but before morning he had reasoned the matter out to his own satisfaction, and evolved a scheme, in the success of which he felt a measurable degree of confidence.
He informed Pont, at an early hour, of the visit be expected, and told him that he should be at home to no one until these men had come and gone.
