Example text

Lanny would bring out the small phonograph and put on a record and teach him dancing steps—exactly as he had done for the little one’s mother. Just twenty-one years ago that had been, when Lanny had come down from Paris after the Peace Conference which had undertaken to make the world safe for Democracy and instead had made it safe for Nazi-Fascism. He had to be sly as the serpent and watchful as the tiger on the hunt; every word had to be studied, every gesture, every facial expression, and many a time he had known that his life depended upon his shrewdness.

Joe had instructions that the inner envelope was to be forwarded by diplomatic pouch, which, of course, always went by air.
