Allen and Sachtleben.^were crossing the desert of Gobi they^heard much of a mysterious and^powerful official called the Ling Da^^rin. No one could tell who or what he^was.

He greeted them^cordially in clear but broken English,^and mounted on waiting horses they^were attended into the city of Su-^chou. Itwas some time before the idea^flashed across our minds that this^might indeed be the mysterious Ling^Darin alxiut whom we had heard so^much. 'Yes,' said he, 'that is what I^am called here, but my real name is^Splingard.' He then went on to tell^11s that he was a Belgian by birth;^that he had traveled extensively^through China as the companion of^Baron Richthofen, and had thus be^^come so thoroughly acq...
