A Bath

Cheswick lives alone and does not call on anyone. He comes to our club every night at seven and rarely leaves before six. His lifestyle does little to encourage a respectable appearance, and it is remarked that he presents a unique olfactory sensation. To encourage better habits, one evening we flooded the water closet while Cheswick was completing his necessaries. Unfortunately it seems we also flooded the wine cellar and the valet's apartments. We were faced with quite a startling bill when we awoke from our grog.
