magnatism

I wrote “The Story of Us” about a romance I had with the son of a secret passage magnate who tried to get me to break up with him by hiding from me in his own house. The walls I couldn’t break down were made of wood-paneled steel. Sadly, he didn’t have the same innate sense of direction his father did-though he was the better kisser of the two.

Hungarian Magnate’s Sabre

  • Dated: Mid-19th Century
  • Measurements: 82 cm; 32 1/4 in blade

The sword has a curved fullered polished steel blade double-edged toward the point and a gilt-brass hilt cast in low relief, comprising a pair of writhen quillons issuant from gaping masks and with flaming terminals.

The langets feature the crowned Hungarian arms within a wreath, grip with a sun-in-splendour in the centre, and the pommel formed as a deity. It is presented in its fabric-covered wooden scabbard, with gilt-brass mounts comprising locket, chape and two bands for suspension rings all decorated with scrolls, flowers and foliage.

The Middle East That Might Have Been

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson dispatched a theologian named Henry King and a plumbing-parts magnate named Charles Crane to sort out the Middle East. Amid the collapse of the Ottoman Empire following World War I, the region’s political future was uncertain, and the two men seemed to provide the necessary combination of business acumen and biblical knowledge. King and Crane’s quest was to find out how the region’s residents wanted to be governed. It would be a major test of Wilson’s belief in national self-determination: the idea that every people should get its own state with clearly defined borders.
