"His Holiness means for us to be seated on the rugs below the throne-das," said Hsien Sgam in a hushed voice.
Hsien Sgam was the pivot of his thoughts as he rolled northward along Strand Road.
Hsien Sgam's vermilion-lacquered sedan-chair swayed along at his side, and in front and rear was a file of leather-helmeted men.
Whereupon Hsien Sgam politely enquired if he might occupy the chair next to Trent's.
As Trent watched Hsien Sgam, an emotion almost of pity smote him.
