  • Often in walking the streets one is suddenly shaken in your ear, and, turning round, you are startled to see a figure entirely clothed in white from head to foot, a rope round his waist, and a white _capuccio_ drawn over his head and face, and showing, through two round holes, a pair of sharp black eyes behind them.
