Grant, M. (n.d.). The Case of Congressman Coyd. Retrieved from

Excerpt: A COLD drizzle had settled upon Washington. The massive bulk of the Capitol building showed hazy in the dulled afternoon light. The high dome of the great building was barely discernible against the foggy sky. Atop the dome, the resplendent statue of Armed Victory formed a shrouded figure amid the swirl of mist. A taxicab was rolling in from the Union Depot. Arriving at the Capitol grounds, the cab pulled up at the east entrance. A wiry passenger alighted, bundling the folds of his raincoat about his chin. Paying the driver, this arrival turned toward the many steps that led into the Capitol. Huddled visitors were coming down those steps, anxious to regain their cars and escape the increasing rain. Swinging in out of the rain, head down and in a hurry, the wiry man bumped squarely into a chap of larger build. The jostled man grunted angrily; then stopped short and clamped a heavy but friendly hand upon the wiry fellow?s shoulder.
