CHAPTER TWENTY
SINFUL WASTE OF A PENNY STAMP

TEN minutes passed. Hughie, leaning heavily against the frame of the French window, gazed listlessly out at a squirrel which was inviting him to a game of hide-and-seek from the far side of a tree-trunk.

Joan must have come in very quietly, for the door was shut and she was sitting on the corner of the writing-table exactly where the recently-departed Haliburton had been posingswinging her feet and surveying her late guardian's back. In her hand she held a pink slip of paper.
Hughie never forgot the picture that she presented at that moment. She was dressed in white-something workmanlike and unencumbering-with a silver filigree belt round her waist. She wore a battered Panama hat-the sort of head-gear affected by "coons" of the music-hall persuasion - with a wisp of pale blue silk
