White, Fred Merrick: The Price Of Silence. V1. 9 May 2012
Frederick Merrick White (1859-?) wrote a number of novels and short stories under the name Fred M. White, including the six 'Doom of London' science-fiction stories, in which various catastrophes beset London. These include The Four Days' Night (1903), in which London is beset by a massive killer smog; The Dust of Death (1903), in which diphtheria infects the city, spreading from refuse tips and sewers; and The Four White Days (1903), in which a sudden and deep winter paralyses the city under snow and ice. These six stories all first appeared in Pearson's Magazine, and were illustrated by Warwick Globe.
You didn't expect to hear from me, did you? Thought you were perfectly safe, eh? Thought that Bertram Pryor, of Heron's Nest, was too big a bug to be touched. But you never know, do you? Now, look here, Bat, I am up against it good and hard, and you have got to help me out. I don't want much—only enough to get me back to the States again; say a couple of hundred. It isn't good enough to come up to the house and ask for you, so I just shoved you in this note through one of your footmen. And I am waiting for you in that little summer-house at the bottom of the terrace. Slip away presently and bring the stuff with you. If you want to know my name you can get it presently.
