Look inside the book:
At the Burgomaster's dictation I was writing out a proclamation warning the inhabitants of Yslemont not to commit any act of violence against the German soldiery and explaining that we were held as hostages for their good behaviour and that a shot fired pg 11 at a German meant a dead wall and a squad of execution for us and the destruction of Yslemont for them—' He flushed, hesitated.
...If you say you'll do it I'll free the Burgomaster and the others in there—' he jerked his bony thumb toward the hallway outside—'If you say you'll do it—if you say you'll go to England, now, and find my daughter, and bring her here to me—or conduct her to whatever point I designate, I'll not have those men shot; I'll not burn the rest of Yslemont; I'll see that you are conducted to the Dutch frontier unmolested after you carry out your engagements with me.
...'You believe that of me?—of a man about whom you know nothing—a man who'—his animated features suddenly darkened and he caught his breath a moment, then—'a man who considers your nation a barbarous one, your rulers barbarians, your war inexcusable, your invasion of this land the vilest example of treachery and dishonour that the world has ever witnessed—you still believe that such a man might consider himself bound to return here if unsuccessful and face one of your murdering platoons?
About Robert W. (Robert William) Chambers, the Author:
His most famous, and perhaps most meritorious, effort is The King in Yellow, an 1895 collection of weird short stories, connected by the theme of the fictitious drama The King in Yellow, which drives those who read it insane.
...Chambers returned to the weird genre in his later short story collections The Maker of Moons and The Tree of Heaven, but neither earned him such success as The King in Yellow.
