Eye witness account of running with an angry mob

Dear Sir,

I was visiting relatives in a small village near Lake Geneva over the holidays, and witnessed a shocking event involving a supposed monster living in the local castle. Rumours of grave robbing were flying around. Locals gathered on New Year's Eve to discuss the rumours, and then things really kicked off.

Please find attached some photos I took of events as they happened. I've added commentary captions, but would happy to write up a full account if you wish to publish it. I'm busy interviewing people who were closer to the action, to get a better sense of what it was I witnessed.

Hoping to hear from you soon,

M. Wollstonecraft Shelley,
near Lake Geneva.

Started off cheerful, people talking about recent events. Didn't last long.

More people turn up. Mood turning quite sour now. Almost angry.

Someone spots Monster lurking in shadows. History in the making!

The chase was on! Very exciting, never been part of angry mob before.

Stopped to switch film. Fell behind the burning torches a bit.

Monster cornered at Corn Exchange. Couldn't get near front.

By time I got close, it was over. Final score: Angry Mob 1, Monster 0.
