Erfy aug that i became quite vexed at you for insisting that my drawing resembled a deaths head when you first made this assertion i thought you were jesting but afterwards i called to mind the Peculiar spots on the Back of Tho admitted to myself that your remark had some Hub foundation in fact still the sneer at my graphic Powers irritated i am considered a Good there fore when you handed to the scrap of Parchment i was about to crumple it up and throw it angrily into Tho the scrap of paper i no it had much of the appearance of paper and at first i supposed it to to such but when i came to draw up on if i discover edit at to be a Pei co of very thin Parchment it was quite dirty you remember Well As 1 was in the very act of crumpling it up my glance fell upon the sketch at which you had been looking and Yon May imagine my astonishment when 1 perceived in fact Tho figure of a deaths head just where it seemed to me i had made the drawing of the Beetle for a moment 1 was too much amazed to think with accuracy 1 knew that my design was very differ ent in detail from Thero was a certain similarity in general out line presently i took a Candle and seating myself at the other end of the room to proceeded t scrutinize Tho Parchment More closely upon turn ing it Over i saw my own sketch upon the reverse just As i had made my first idea now was More Surprise at the really remarkable similarity of the coincidence involved in the fact to to Thero should have been a Skull upon the Otner Side of Tho Parchment immediately be Neath my figure of the scarab us and that this Skull not Only in outline but in size should so closely resemble my drawing i say the singularity of this coincidence absolutely Stup find to for a time this is the usual of such mind Strug Gles to establish a sequence of cause and being unable to do so suffers a species of temporal y paralysis but when i re covered from this stupor there dawned upon me gradually a conviction which startled me even for Moro than the coincidence i began distinctly positively to remember that there had been no drawing upon the Parchment when i made my sketch of the i became perfectly curtain of 1 recollected turning up first one Sidtis and then the other in search cleanest spot Hud the Skull been then there of course i could hot have failed to notice it Here was indeed a mystery which i Felt it impossible to explain but even at that Early moment libero seemed to Glimmer faintly within the most Remote arid secret Chambers of my intellect a Glowworm like Concep Tion of that truth which last nights adventure brought to a demonstration i arose at once Dis missing All further reflection until i should be alone when you had gone and Hon Jupiter was fast asleep i Betook my self to u More methodical investigation of Tho affair in Tho first place 1 con Elered the manner in which the parch ment had come into my Tho spot where we discovered Tho scarab us was on the coast of Tho main land about a mile eastward of Tho Island and but a Short distance u Bove High water Mark upon my seizing it it gave me a Sharp bite which caused to to let it drop Jupi Ter with his accustomed caution be fore seizing Tho insect which had flown towards him looked about him of Tomt Datura of it it Tor a Leaf or something by which to take hold at this moment that his eyes and also fell upon the scrap of Parchment which i then supposed paper it was lying half buried in the Sand a Corner sticking up Nuar the spot where we found it j observed the remnants of the Hull of what appeared to have been a ships Long boat the wreck seemed in have been there for a very great while for the resemblance to boat Umbers could scarcely be faced Jupiter picked up the parch wrapped the Beetle in it and gave it to me soon afterwards to turned to go Home and on the Way met lieu tenant i allowed him the the insect arid he begged my to let him Lake it to fort upon my it forthwith into his Waistcoat pocket without the Parchment in which it had been wrapped and which 1 had continued to hold in my Haud during Insp Stion perhaps he dreaded my changing my mind and thought it Best to make sure of prize at know How enthusiastic he is on All subjects connected with Natu ral at the sumo with out being conscious of it i must have deposited the Parchment in my own you remember that when i wont to Tho table Tho purpose of making a sketch of the Beetle i found no paper where it was usually kept i looked in Tho drawer and found none 1 searched my pockets hoping to find an old letter when my hand fell upon the Parchment i thus detail the pre Cise Mode in which it it came into my Possession for the circumstances impressed me with Peculiar Force no doubt you think to Fanci had already established a kind of i had put together two links of a great Chain there was u boat lying upon a seacoast and not tar from Tho boat was a not a a Skull depicted upon it you will of course ask where is the connection 1 reply that Tho Skull or deaths head is the Well known Emblem of the the Flag of the deaths head is hoisted in All engagements i have said that the scrap was Parchment and not paper parch ment is matters of Little moment arc aurely con signed to Parchment since for the Mere Ordinary purposes of drawing 01 writing it is not nearly so Well Adap Ted As paper this reflection suggested some in Tho deaths head 1 did not fail to observe also the of the parch ment although one of its Corners Hai been by some Accident destroyed i could be seen that the original form was it was just such a slip indeed us might have been chosen Foi a record some thing to to Long remembered and cure fully preserved interposed you say that the Skull was not upon tha Pacl Evju when you made thu drawing of the be Otle How then do you Trayou any con Naclion Between the boat and the Skol thin Kilter according to you own admission must have been do signed god Only knows or by whom at Sozio period it your sketching Tho scarab Deuas a Hereupon rums tli3 whole mys cry although Tho secret at this Point i had Cempura Lovely Little in solving my Steps were sure Aiu could afford but a single result 1 reasoned for example Ulian Drew the scarab us Thero was no ski apparent upon the pure Ament whet 1 had completed the drawing i gave i to you and observed you Imp lowly Uail you returned it you the Foro did not design Tho was present to do it Thau it not clone by human Agency and nevertheless it was done at Liis stage of my reflections i endeavoured to remember and did Mem Bor with Etire distinctness incident which occurred about lilo parlor in question the weather was Chilly of rare and Happy Accident Anil a fire was blazing upon the Hearth i was heated with exercise and Sal near the table you however had drawn a chair close to tha Chimney Justus placed the Parchment in your Hanl Grid As you were in the act of inspect ing it Wolf Tho Newfoundland dog entered and leaped upon your Sliu Ulin ers with your left hand you Curavo sed him and kept him off while your right holding the Parchment was to fall listlessly Between y out Knees and in close proximity to Ilia fire at one moment i thought the Blaze Hud Civ get it and a Gibaut to caution you but before 1 could speak you had withdrawn it and were engaged in its examination Whon 1 considered ail these particulars i doubted not for a moment that heat bad been the agent in bringing to Light upon the parcs yet the Skull which i new designed upon it you arc Well Ware that chemical preparations exist t have existed time out of mind by mans of which if is possible to write Pon either paper or vellum so that he charac tors shall become visible Only when the4 of fire 1 now scrutinized Tho deaths Hood Vit Honra its

Appertain to the farm ing i have just said that the figure was not that of a Well n kid much the same pretty much but not said Legrand you heard of one Captain i at once looked upon the figure of the animal As a kind of punning or 1 say signature because its position up on the vellum suggested this idea Tho deaths head at the Corner diagonally opposite had air air Oia Seal but i was sorely put out by inc absence of All else the body to my imagined instr the text to my i presume you expected to find n letter Between Tho stamp and the Sig of that kind the fact is i Felt irresistibly impressed with a presentiment of some vast Good Fortune pending i can scarcely say perhaps after All it was rather a desire ban an actual Linlie but do you know that flip items silly words about the Bug being of solid Gold had a remarkable effect upon my fancy t and then the series of accidents and these were so do you observe How Mee an acc ident it was thai these events should have occurred upon the Sola
