      A Handbook Of Volapük
      And An Elementary Manual Of Its Grammar And Vocabulary, Prepared From
      The Gathered Papers Of Gemmell Hunter Ibidem Justice; Together With An
      Account Of Events Relating To The Annual General Meeting Of 1891 Of
      The Edinburgh Society For The Propagation Of a Universal Language

      fa Andrew Drummond

      "In April 1891, two matters greatly excite the inhabitants of Edinburgh:
      the decennial Population Census and the Annual General Meeting of the Edinburgh
      Society for the Propagation of a Universal Language. The General Secretary, Mr
      Justice, is a militant champion of the highly popular language
      'Volapuk'; but he is locked
      in a battle for with Dr Bosman, a shameless apologist for 'Esperanto'.
      Mr Justice
      travels the east coast of Scotland in part conducting classes in the
      grammar and
      vocabulary of Volapuk. En route, he recruits a secret ally - an
      ill-behaved old gentleman
      who has promised to bring the majority over to the Volapuk camp. But,
      when the AGM
      does not deliver the expected victory, treachery is revealed. After an
      epic debate, some
      scones, and many cups of tea, Mr Justice decides to kidnap Dr. Bosman, teach
      him some grammar, and retreat with him to the Mavisbank Private Lunatic Asylum.
      Tragically, Bosman is the Census Officer for Edinburgh, and his absence during
      the Census brings unwelcome attention from the authorities."
