Chapter IV – Part III

March 23, 2016

His stage face gone, Jim meets with Orren Boyle who reports that D’Anconia lost his money, just like Jim. Jim is surprised that this brilliant man who has “outwitted some of the slickest combinations of money grubbers on earth” would now be “taken by a bunch of Greaser politicians.”

Orren says he should call his friend and ask. Jim says he hates him, but has clearly tried. His male secretary of fading youth and well-bred impoverished manner enters, worried about the response he received from Francisco’s secretary:

“’He said that Senor D’Anconia said that you bore him, Mr. Taggart.”
