THE PRIORY

the principal of the firm entered, and all further discussion was ended-which was just as well for the peace of mind of the junior clerk, whose imagination had set off on a riot of speculation.
Still there seemed to be a wealth of mystery about these two astonishing purchases !
As for the Priory itself, it certainly seemed to fit in with the strange things which were said about it. The building dated back to the sixteenth century, and stood in the midst of broad acres of fine parkland. From its ancient records one gathered that it had been originally built quite early in Elizabeth's time, but had been considerably added-to in the troublous days of her successors. The tempestuous times of the Cavalier and Roundhead quarrels had stormed about its very walls ; and it is said that at one period it was actually used as the Royalist headquarters. This all lent colour to the rumour that there was both a secret room and a secret way-out to some place in or near Granchester ; but no one living had ever been known to trace them.
The guide books, however, encouraged the romantic interest which had grown up about the place ; and Americans and others flocked to see its crumbling walls and moss-grown roofs. No doubt there was an air of mystery about it; especially as (after years of neglect) the garden had become a wilderness. The main buildings were almost covered with a giant creeper of some sort unknown to the local peoplethough the curator from the Botanical Gardens had been said to have identified it. It had once been cut by someone who wanted a` slip' to plant ; and to his horror it seemed to bleed deep crimson blood, just like a human being. No wonder, with such tales as these about, the place had a reputation of horror
