This etext was prepared by Tom Weiss (email@example.com) from
the version of "Seven Men" published in 1919 by William
Heinemann (London). I have omitted two of the stories
("James Pethel" and "A.V. Laider") since they are available
separately from Project Gutenberg.
I have removed spaces that preceded semicolons, exclamation
points, question marks, and closing quotation marks. I have
removed spaces that followed opening quotation marks. I have
converted paragraph formatting and ellipses to PG standard.
In this plain ASCII version, I have converted emphasis and syllable
stress italics to capitals, removed foreign italics, and removed
In "Enoch Soames:"
I added a missing closing quotation mark in the following
phrase: `Ten past two,' he said.
