‘What did he tell you?’
‘Well,’ said Mr Franklin, searching for something that would bear repetition, ‘he did mention that he had been a peace officer in an American cattle-town, but I wasn’t entirely sure whether I should believe him.’
‘Oh, that’s true enough,’ said Fisher. ‘Anything he tells you is liable to be true — and the unlikelier it sounds the more true it probably is. He’s been everywhere, done everything — amazing old bird.’
Mr American, p.189, Pan Books, paperback edition 1982.
