Excerpt from The Title-MongersThat the Marquis Montrecourt pos sessed a title is evident, and that with its aid he had acquired a goodly number of ever-accumulating debts may be readily surmised. But it is well further to know that the Marquis Montrecourt, at earlier stages in his career, had not been the oc cupant of so impoverished a position as at present; indeed, there had been days, not so long gone by, when he had spent his fifty or sixty thousand francs a year Without living beyond the interest on his late father's conservative investments. Since then, however, he had made his own investments, growing less and less conservative, until he had become a ruined gambler, an lzabz'tué of the race track, a drainer of the dregs of roulette, baccarat, constantly intoxicated with gain ing, and tottering downward in this most demoralising passion, a miserable loser.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
