A super tale, and a new one on me. It (slightly) recalls O.Henry's tale, "Appointment in Samara", also the death of the prince in "Il Gattopardo" but is also quite distinct from either.

Thanks, Chris. I think it is a bit wordy and if I wrote it again I would probably cut quite a lot. But, since it is a product of its time - 1992ish - I decided to leave it as it is.
