The following passage is from a short story. Earlier in the day, Hughie visited his friend Trevor, who was painting a beggar at the time. While Trevor was out of the room, Hughie impulsively gave the beggar some coins. In this passage, Hughie finds out the beggar’s real identity.

‘You told  that old beggar all my private affairs?’ cried Hughie, looking very red and  angry.

‘My dear  boy,’ said Trevor, smiling, ‘that old beggar, as you call him, is one of the  richest men in Europe. He could buy all London to-morrow without overdrawing  his account. He has a house in every capital, dines off gold plate, and can  prevent Russia going to war when he chooses.’

‘What on  earth do you mean?’ exclaimed Hughie.

‘What I say,’  said Trevor. ‘The old man you saw to-day in the studio was Baron Hausberg. He  is a great friend of mine, buys all my pictures and that sort of thing, and  gave me a commission a month ago to paint him as a beggar. Que voulez-vous? La fantaisie d’un  millionaire! And I must say he made a magnificent figure in his rags, or  perhaps I should say in my rags; they are an old suit I got in Spain.’

‘Baron  Hausberg!’ cried Hughie. ‘Good heavens! I gave him a sovereign1!’  and he sank into an armchair the picture of dismay.

‘Gave him a  sovereign!’ shouted Trevor, and he burst into a roar of laughter. ‘My dear boy,  you’ll never see it again. Son affaire  c’est l’argent des autres.’
