he stranger arrived in Iping on a cold day in February, garbed head to foot in

an ensemble that seemed to come straight from a theatrical wardrobe,

complete with false nose. He took up residence in a private parlor at the

Coach and Horses, and although he paid well and promptly, something about

his demeanor seemed strangely amiss. He ate all of his meals alone, and he hinted

at some sort of vague accident when questioned about the bandages he wore

invisible man makes his way to Port Stowe. Stung by his treatment at the hands of

the Iping villagers, he is no longer hoping for understanding from his fellow

humans; he only only wants to force cooperation from them as he seeks to restore

himself to visibility.
