THE ENQUIRY BEGINS

With considerable difficulty he got astride the wall, then balancing himself carefully, he reached into his pocket as though to seek the promised half-crown (oh yes, there had been a contract!).

Now it hangs in his rooms, and a very disconsolate policeman is trying to explain how he lost it !"
" I call that a rotten trick," said Bunny, disgusted at the unsportsmanlike action.
But Royston laughed like anything.
" I heard a similar story in my time, too!" he said offensively.
He had come to the conclusion now, that he had heard all these two could tell him. As a matter of fact they had been pretty conscientious in their effort to tell him everything. They had omitted nothing that they had noticed ; and mentioned in their story quite a lot of other things which appealed to their listener in a way that had not occurred to them. From what they had told him Royston was quite curious to learn more of Mr. Bernaldi ; he seemed a most interesting person. His opportune appearance in Carl's rooms that day-and in Bunny's before that ; his manifest interest in Carl himself ; Carl's fear of him ; and his attractive house. All these, and many other things, made Royston decide that he would certainly take an early opportunity of meeting him. It struck him as being peculiar that the two boys had suspected him, before ever Lord d'Harlecourt turned up with his bona fides. In fact, it was this suspicion that first turned Royston's mind to Bernaldi-the boys had acted on `first impressions' ; and Royston believed in first impressions !
