After all, thought the Demon, one can be a darn good Demon, and still be concerned with matters of thrift. Maintaining a full size, mechanical cloud was no easy chore (physically or financially), even in those days. Even tho he hated his boarders, Demon Thirst needed the money. (Does that surprise you? That Demons need money?) Now, if he could get the sixty- five bucks ransom money, he could do a few things in the Cloud.-Paint up a bit, curtains for Mr. Chinderless' room, fix the shower, etc. So, Demon Thirst sent the ransom note to the General.
