Carlos Spegazzini

"a short man in a long overcoat, unbottened, and the coattails flying out behind, an old soft felt black hat, a big sword cane hung on the arm, a very dirty necktie and shabby much besotted suit, dull grey hair and pointed beard, smooth skin and fresh rather baby-like complexion, gold spectacles, and nose in the air, with short jerky steps, blue eyes so wide open as to appear ready to pop forth at once with an expression as of utter astonishment at the things he beheld. This was Spegazzini" – Roland Thaxter
