Charles was a gentleman who attended a party in London, 1880.
During a party in London, 1880, Charles discussed with Cecily, an unidentified maid, and an unidentified gentleman about a recent rash of disappearances in the town. When William Pratt arrived at the circle, the amateur poet changed the subject to poems, prompting the unidentified gentleman to snatch his unfinished work and read it out loud. The poem amused the crowd, who all laughed at him. Apparently, Charles had hears others of his works, as he commented that, ironically, the poem had been one of his best compositions.
