They, easilie inflambed, gave the alarm, and so was that abbey and palace appointed to the saccage; in doing whereof they took no long deliberation, but committed the whole to the merriment of fire; whereat no small number of us was so offended, that patientlie we could not speak to any that were of Dundee or Saint Johnstone."

"I see!" Dundee acknowledged soberly, but his blue eyes shone with sudden joy. "Oh! There's long distance! Just a minute, darling!... Hello!

And Dundee, wondering, beginning to doubt his own conviction a little that conviction which had sprung full-grown out of Nita's strange, informal will, and which had seemed to explain everything followed Lydia Carr from her basement room to the bedroom in which Nita had been murdered....
