"Get her to tell you exery* thing she can remember, no matter hoxx trivial; any childish pacts they made, no matter how silly they may sound." There was . something in his voice xvhich suddenly made me fee] asbamed of having dismissed Marion's mention of "something blue" so lightly. For I was suddenly «ure that he attached great xx eight to what Mary could remember of her early companionship with Marion What it was he expected to find out. he of course had no idea, but it was plain tha* he considered it fertile ground, and expected me to delve in it.

"If you haxe doubts, of course you won’t succeed," he said with acerbity. “I am asking you to put those doubts aside,, and talk to .Nf*el with full confidence that he xxill see the justice of the thing, as we do." I wanted to say: "But he happens to he Mary’s husband. Instead I asked quietly: "Do you xx ant me to talk to Noel before I go back to the I'nderw oods ?” My father gave me an incredu lous stare. "But of course." he said. “As soon as you haxe finished ques tioning Marx about Marlon. I xxish you to go directly to Noel."
