Description: 

Major de Spain's office is described as "the big, airy, book-lined second-storey room with windows at one end opening upon the shabby hinder purlieus of stores and at the other a door giving onto the railed balcony above the Square" (301). Its furnishings include "a wicker-covered demijohn of whiskey" and a "bamboo-and-paper punkah [fan]" kept swinging back and forth over the Major's desk by "old Ash," the Negro servant who sits "in a tilted chair beside the entrance pulling the cord" (301).
