Miss Van Arsdale, it seems, didn't go for paintings. I'm with her - I'm an etchings man myself, especially the little green ones with Hamilton's picture in the middle. If I was going to earn a bundle, I had the ball rolling, setting myself up as a target. They'd stampede if they were following me as close as I figured. It didn't take long. The following morning they took the bait - hook, line and sinker.
