"Did he say how long he was going to stop here?" asked Bryce. "Two or three days," replied Harker. "Did he mention Ransford?" inquired Bryce. "Never!" said Harker. "Did he make any reference to his wife and children?" "Not the slightest!" "Nor to the hint that his counsel threw out at the trial?"

Ransford's garden as if he had been there. Dr. Bryce! a direct question should have been asked of Dr. Ransford had he ever seen that man before?"
