    "It is the purest accident. I cannot allow that there is anyhumiliation."

   "One thing comes back to my memory which may have a bearing upon thebusiness that you two gentlemen are investigating. I thought nothingof it at the time. Near the end of dinner a note was handed in bythe servant. I noticed that after my host had read it he seemed evenmore distrait and strange than before. He gave up all pretence atconversation and sat smoking endless cigarettes, lost in his ownthoughts, but he made no remark as to the contents. About eleven I wasglad to go to bed. Some time later Garcia looked in at my door- theroom was dark at the time- and asked me if I had rung. I said that Ihad not. He apologized for having disturbed me so late, saying that itwas nearly one o'clock. I dropped off after this and slept soundly allnight.

    "'North by ten and by ten, east by five and by five, south by twoand by two, west by one and by one, and so under.'

    "See here, Mr. Holmes. I came to you on a question of evidence,not on a question of morals. I'm not asking for your criticism.""It is only for the young lady's sake that I touch your case atall," said Holmes sternly. "I don't know that anything she isaccused of is really worse than what you have yourself admitted,that you have tried to ruin a defenceless girl who was under yourroof. Some of you rich men have to be taught that all the world cannotbe bribed into condoning your offences."

   Dinner was over, and the table cleared before Holmes alluded tothe matter again. He had lit his pipe and held his slippered feet tothe cheerful blaze of the fire. Suddenly he looked at his watch."I expect developments, Watson."<  "Yes, Brenda Tregennis," repeated our visitor. "For years I haveloved her. For years she has loved me. There is the secret of thatCornish seclusion which people have marvelled at. It has brought meclose to the one thing on earth that was dear to me. I could not marryher, for I have a wife who has left me for years and yet whom, bythe deplorable laws of England, I could not divorce. For yearsBrenda waited. For years I waited. And this is what we have waitedfor." A terrible sob shook his great frame, and he clutched his throatunder his brindled beard. Then with an effort he mastered himselfand spoke on:

   The ejaculation had been drawn from my companion by the fact thatour door had been suddenly dashed open, and that a huge man had framedhimself in the aperture. His costume was a peculiar mixture of theprofessional and of the agricultural, having a black top-hat, a longfrock-coat, and a pair of high gaiters, with a hunting-crop swingingin his hand. So tall was he that his hat actually brushed the crossbar of the doorway, and his breadth seemed to span it across from sideto side. A large face, seared with a thousand wrinkles, burnedyellow with the sun, and marked with every evil passion, was turnedfrom one to the other of us, while his deep-set, bile-shot eyes, andhis high, thin, fleshless nose, gave him somewhat the resemblance to afierce old bird of prey.

    Clearly our moment had come. Holmes touched my wrist as a signal,and together we stole across to the open trap-door. Gently as wemoved, however, the old floor must have creaked under our feet, forthe head of our American, peering anxiously round, emerged suddenlyfrom the open space. His face turned upon us with a glare of baffledrage, which gradually softened into a rather shamefaced grin as herealized that two pistols were pointed at his head.

<  "I drove to the butcher's and back."   "On the face of it the case is not a very complex one, though itcertainly presents some novel and interesting features. A furtherknowledge of facts is necessary before I would venture to give a finaland definite opinion. By the way, Mr. Baynes, did you find anythingremarkable besides this note in your examination of the house?"The detective looked at my friend in a singular way.

    "'I suppose that you could not possibly whistle, yourself, in yoursleep?'


<  "This is the place," said he as we came to two high park gateswith heraldic griffins towering above them. "About midday, Mr.Barnes informs me, the old lady takes a drive, and the carriage mustslow down while the gates are opened. When it comes through, andbefore it gathers speed, I want you, Watson, to stop the coachman withsome question. Never mind me. I shall stand behind this holly-bush andsee what I can see."   "Miss Sarah Cushing is extremely ill," said he. "She has beensuffering since yesterday from brain symptoms of great severity. Asher medical adviser, I cannot possibly take the responsibility ofallowing anyone to see her. I should recommend you to call again inten days." He drew on his gloves, closed the door, and marched offdown the street.

    "To-day, about three o'clock, the proofs of this paper arrivedfrom the printers. The exercise consists of half a chapter ofThucydides. I had to read it over carefully, as the text must beabsolutely correct. At four-thirty my task was not yet completed. Ihad, however, promised to take tea in a friend's rooms, so I leftthe proof upon my desk. I was absent rather more than an hour."You are aware, Mr. Holmes, that our college doors are double-agreen baize one within and a heavy oak one without. As I approached myouter door, I was amazed to see a key in it. For an instant I imaginedthat I had left my own there, but on feeling in my pocket I found thatit was all right. The only duplicate which existed, so far as Iknew, was that which belonged to my servant, Bannister- a man whohas looked after my room for ten years, and whose honesty isabsolutely above suspicion. I found that the key was indeed his,that he had entered my room to know if I wanted tea, and that he hadvery carelessly left the key in the door when he came out. His visitto my room must have been within a very few minutes of my leavingit. His forgetfulness about the key would have mattered little uponany other occasion, but on this one day it has produced the mostdeplorable consequences.
