Pheeney had not been there - he usually came in to breakfast and to collect his letters. You won a hundred from me last week, he said. He took a metal badge from his pocket, and the big man gurgled apprehensively.
Im a lawyer - you probably know my name, though Ive never been in a police court in my life.
He thought of thin people in terms of brittleness - and she was supple and plastic. Must have - no, hes not a drummer - he had the best cabin on the ship and tipped well. Get to blazes out of this, you amateur tale - teller!
Didnt I boast once that I was related to Lord Selford - by the way, what is he like?
Another pause, and then: What do you really suspect?
I cant speak Portuguese either, and that made it difficult. Half way through I said I wanted to go out, and, once outside, I bolted.
And most earnestly I am desirous that he should not know I sent you.
Now, Mr Martin, how does the idea appeal to you? And that ended the conversation until the evening.
They say he can do anything with a pack of cards except make it sing.
Yes - though I didnt know this was all I should get from my trip. The six detectives made a minute examination of the premises.
He is a nomad of nomads; his father in his youth was something of the same nature. That is to say, he lives nowhere longer than two or three days together. Ive been waitin a chance to talk to you - I dont know you, though your face is kind of familiar. And most earnestly I am desirous that he should not know I sent you.
I wont tell you that, said the other sullenly. The advance guard of the confidence men smiled pleasantly as he offered his hand.
Selford Manor is going to ruin for want of an occupant.
It is only a mile from here; you can step over and ask if you like. I was wondering when you were coming into the library.
Perfectly sound, perfectly sound, said Mr Havelock impressively. Now, Lew, let me hear the truth - what was the work you were doing on Tuesday night? Yet it might be advisable to leave the man to write his story. We must meet in town - -At Wandsworth Gaol - or maybe Pentonville, said Dick Martin deliberately.
Ive been thirty thousand miles rustling shadows! What they do with themselves the rest of the time, Ive never found out.
Ive got a regular job; Im chauffeur to Mr Bertram Cody, said Tom virtuously. You can imagine how I felt when I opened the box and found - this key.
The big man said nothing for a moment, then: Come outside, he said. That was the sad news I was trying to break to you, he said. Pheeney had left the previous afternoon somewhere about five and had not returned.
