5: Poor Old Cuss A frightened Cuss, Makes a great fuss. A pinch on the nose, And out the door he goes. A story to tell, Which seemed like a spell. Twas only a hand, That made his story grand.
6: The hunter becomes the hunted... | Dear Dr. Kemp, You have been amazingly energetic and clever, though what you stand to gain by it I cannot imagine. You are against me. For a whole day you have chased me; you have tried to rob me of a night's rest. But I have had food in spite of you. I have slept in spite of you, and the game is only beginning. The game is only beginning. There is nothing for it, but to start the Terror. This announces the first day of theTerror. Port Burdock is no longer under the Queen, tell you Colonel of Police, and the rest of them; it is under me -- the Terror! This is day one of year one of the new epoch, -- the Epoch of the Invisible Man. I am Invisible Man the First. To begin with the rule will be easy. The first day there will be one execution for the sake of example, -- a man named Kemp. Death starts for him to-day. He may lock himself away, hide himself away, get guard about him, put on armour if he likes; Death, the unseen Death, is coming. Let him take precautions; it will impress my people. Death starts from the pillar box by midday. The letter will fall in as the postman comes along, then off! The game begins. Death starts. Help him not, my people, lest Death fall upon you also. To-day Kemp is to die.
7: December 21: Crime has become my outlet. It is pretty fun messing with people. December 22: I caught a cold the other night when I was in the vicarage.
