at a chemist's, bought a small box of pan-cake make-up and, in the chemist's back room, sponged it round his discoloured eye.
Driving down the King's Road, O'Day concluded that it wasn't a lot of good wondering about anything. Wondering seldom got you anywhere. Facts were the things that mattered, and in order to arrive at facts you merely had to follow your nose. The process invariably brought you on to something tangible, even if it were only a brick wall!
At half-past one O'Day sat in the corner of the bar parlour at the Crown Inn at Alfriston. He drank a whisky and soda and kept a wary eye on the bar.
There was no one else in the room. Behind the bar-which served the Bar Parlour and-on the opposite side-the Private Bar-was a barman wearing a white jacket and a bored expression.
O'Day smoked patiently. At one forty-five a youngish one-armed man came in and told the barman to go and get his lunch. O'Day wandered over to the bar; ordered another drink.

O'Day said: "Thanks. Have a drink, Mr. Filson.
