CHAPTER THREE

imagination ceased to guide her and she was beset by innumerable questions.
Was it a party that had drawn Francis from his home to-night on so late a visit to his friends, or was it something far more sinister? Lizbeth had heard her father's arguments against Dr. Keen too often for her to forget them. There was no doubt that the Doctor was a clever man. The results of his experiments had brought him both scientific and social recognition, and yet there had always been something strange and slightly suspicious about him.
He spoke very seldom of his life before he settled in England, but it was understood that he had lived for many years in Spain. Local gossip related that he had friends who visited him late at night, cloaked and masked ; and that, when visitors stayed with him, they were never seen even by the servants of the house and were waited on only by the master or his daughter.
There were those who swore that his visitors were Jesuits, members of the Mission which had come to England in 1580 and aroused great alarm. Their aim, the Jesuits said, was to save souls and they were forbidden to meddle in politics ; but the Government had denounced them as traitors and had declared that they were working for the destruction of the Queen.
Despite stringent penalties if they were caught, the work of the priests went on with striking success. Moving about the country in disguise, hidden in gentlemen's houses, they inspired Catholics with their fanatical fervour ; and the fact that they were spied upon, hunted and persecuted only resulted in their being venerated as martyrs.
Lizbeth knew it would be disastrous for her brother to be discovered associating with Jesuits either at Dr. Keen's house or elsewhere. It was for Sir Harry Gillingham, as Lord Lieutenant of the County, not only to uphold the Queen's dignity, but also to ferret out and destroy her enemies.
He was, as he had said so often, deeply suspicious of Dr. Keen ; but as yet nothing had been proved against him, and the Queen's interest in his work had, for the moment at any rate, lulled many people's suspicions into quiescence.
