"Brigadier General Theodore Marley Brooks' squabble with Monk dates back
to the World War when Ham, as a joke, taught Monk some French words that
were highly insulting, telling him they would curry the favor of a French
General. Monk tried the words out, and was promptly clapped into the guardhouse.
After Monk's release, Ham was hauled up on a charge of stealing hams, and
the evidence was found in his quarters. Ham denied the theft, and his agile
tongue -- Ham being a lawyer by profession -- got him out of the scrape.
Somebody stole the hams and planted the evidence; and Ham had his suspicions,
for Monk had been entirely too innocent about the matter."
