He put the glass to his lips, and drank at one gulp. A cry followed; he
reeled, staggered, clutched at the table and held on, staring with
infected eyes, gasping with open mouth; and as I looked, there came, I
thought, a change he seemed to swell - his face became suddenly black,
and the features seemed to melt and alter and the next moment I
had sprung to my feet and leaped back against the wall, my arm raised to
shield me from that prodigy, my mind submerged in terror.
`O God!' I screamed, and `O God!' again and again; for there before my
eyes pale and shaken, and half fainting, and groping before him with his
hands, like a man restored from death there stood Henry Jekyll!
