Our second post is now overdue, and I shall be surprised if it does not bring us either a further letter of explanation, or, as is more probable, the very volume to which these figures refer.

...It was remarked sometimes, however, by those who knew them best, that the confidence between the two did not appear to be complete, since the wife was either very reticent about her husbands past life, or else, as seemed more likely, was imperfectly informed about it.

...In age he was rather younger than Douglas-forty-five at the most-a tall, straight, broad-chested fellow with a clean-shaved, prize-fighter face, thick, strong, black eyebrows, and a pair of masterful black eyes which might, even without the aid of his very capable hands, clear a way for him through a hostile crowd.

... He was cordial and intimate with Douglas, and he was no less friendly with his wife-a friendship which more than once seemed to cause some irritation to the husband, so that even the servants were able to perceive his annoyance.

...And now, my long-suffering readers, I will ask you to come away with me for a time, far from the Sussex Manor House of Birlstone, and far also from the year of grace in which we made our eventful journey which ended with the strange story of the man who had been known as John Douglas.
