I understood my brother to be living under a nom de guerre. Oh, it isn’t common knowledge, Captain Drinkwater; you need have no fear that more than a few men know about it. e, and Prince Vorontzoff, your brother’s employer and a man sympathetic to the alliance with Great Britain, knows him for an Englishman. But I think I am the only other man who knows his identity, excepting yourself, of course. But you have not said how you knew. He was sent to me from Hamburg.
