NEMESIS

someone had been into the office and burned Needham's letter. Who do you think that would be? Would that be Vanner?"
Dougal shrugged his shoulders. "I haven't the remotest notion who it was, sir, but"-he smiled; Grogan thought it was the gloomiest smile he'd ever seen-"there's something very fishy about this burned letter."
" What?" The Assistant Commissioner sat back comfortably in his chair. He liked listening to Dougal. He had a great admiration for the processes of Dougal's brain.
" I had a look at the ash-tray on O'Day's desk," the Chief Detective-Inspector went on. "Now that ashtray hadn't been cleaned since last Saturday when this business happened. By that I mean the cleaner or somebody had just emptied the ashes of the burned letter when she was doing the offices, but she didn't clean the ash-tray. There were quite a few particles of the burned paper still adhering to it."
" Yes?" said Grogan.
" Just to make assurance double sure, as Shakespeare said, I took the ash-tray away and, believe it or not, sir, the paper that was burned in that ash-tray was not the letter which Needham left."
Grogan said: "You don't say? So that was a plant too. You've checked on that?"
Dougal nodded. "Miss Trundle tells me that she gave Needham a pad of very good thick writing paper, sir. She gave me a couple of sheets of it for the test. The ash in the ash-tray did not come from that paper. I'll tell you what it was. In Miss Trundle's drawer is a pile of cheap draft typewriting copy
