Next morning, a banksman, who acted as personal attendant on Hugh Ritson, brought him his breakfast.
Van Dyck told our part in the happenings briefly, and the old banksman chuckled delightedly.
Toward nightfall he grew feverish, and rang frequently the bell that summoned the banksman.
The banksman at the mouth of the pit received the signal from those below that they were ready to be drawn up.
He had come at last in answer to the banksman's summons, and now he knocked at the door.
