MISS CORNELIUS

But they searched the garden in vain.
`My fancy, I suppose,' said Saxon wearily, `my cursed fancy. Unless,' he added as an afterthought, `it was an example of the attractive power of hate.'
Once more and once only was he to see Miss Cornelius before that fatal motor accident liberated him by her death from a life of daily torture and nightly despair.
Dr. Luttrell, at Saxon's request, had written to Bestwick, who in his reply fixed a date for an interview with Molly. Luttrell himself was unable to go with the Saxons, but he arranged for his car to take them over, and Miss Hordern came with them for the sake of the ride. He was grateful for the consideration which made her choose the seat by the driver, for he could see that Molly was depressed and in no mood to introduce the countryside to her guest. He did his best to comfort her, explaining how a frank talk with Bestwick might help them both to see things in proper perspective, and assuring her that she would find him an easy man to get on with.
As they drew near their destination, he saw that she was crying. .
`Andrew,' she said, `dear Old Alfred, you do trust me, don't you? You'll never believe that I ever plotted against you or did anything to hurt or injure you? Promise me that.'
'Of course I trust you, my darling. I trust you implicitly and always will do.'
`And I'd like Alice to be with me when I talk to Dr. Bestwick. You don't mind, do you? You see, she's been my father confessor and knows all about it.'
`I think it is an excellent idea,' he said. `I have a very high opinion of your cousin.'
And so, when they had met and shaken hands with Bestwick, Saxon was left in a rather sombre reception-room, while the doctor took the two ladies off to his study for a preliminary talk. After ten minutes he returned alone.
`And now,' he said, `I want to hear your statement of things from the beginning. Don't hurry. Take your time over it, but tell me everything, however trivial it may seem.'
