Needless to say that rat was "na-poo," which is soldier-French, meaning "finis."
I had set "Finis" to that chapter; was fate minded to overrule me and write more?
I will write a bold "Finis" at the end, and shut the book with a bang!
It seems, however, that they had not come to the real, sure-enough Finis.
When I came away it was like closing a book and writing 'Finis.'
