Mhfc Lawrence was an heiress in her

Mr. Disbrow had for Miss Lawrence.

Finally it was raised, and I recognized it
as that of Mits Lawrence. She said:
" 'Well. Louis is roming. too, isn't he. if
we get the boat? Then I looked out of the
window and saw the three walking in the

and neither did I. Nobody has seen Mr.

Before the bodies were recovered Mrs.
Lawrence made the following statement:
"IjouI Disbrow came to me and asked

I made no answer. Thon 'Dimp' spoke up

Mr. Smith on the train, und did not !.ae

to pull out from Th Good Ground station.

that "Dimple" and Foster were together

This part of the ground having been cov
