Page 161 Quote

I'm currently reading the Invisible Man by H.G. Wells and since it doesn't ever reach page 161 (the book is really short) I decided to quote from page 61.

"The story of the flying money was true. And all about that neighborhood, even from the august London and Country Banking Company, from the tills of shops and inns-doors standing that sunny weather entirely open-money had been quietly and dexterously making off that day in handfuls and rouleaux, floating quietly along by walls and shady places, dodging quickly from the approaching eyes of men. And it had, though no man had traced it, invariably ended its mysterious flight in the pocket of that agitated gentleman in the obsolete silk hat, sitting outside the little inn on the outskirts of Port Stowe."
