" Maybe, my lord," said the other rather shortly. " But we are not sure there is a cave ! Anyhow, we cannot get anyone to take it. You see, the story of this underground cavern is spread all about the district ; and all sorts of foolish tales are abroad concerning it."
" It's a pity," sighed Lord Tankerton. " It was worth a lot of money-how much do you think, Sir Charles ? "
" Seven or eight thousand, in an ordinary way," was the answer. " But I'm afraid we wouldn't get anything like that for it now. Of course, I am asking eight thousand in the prospectus of sale, but if we get four, we will be lucky."
There was a discreet tap on the door :
" Sir Charles is wanted on the 'phone, milord," said the butler.
" Oh, thanks," said Lord Tankerton. " Put it through to this room-if you would prefer it," he added, turning to the lawyer.
" Thank you," said Sir Charles gratefully. He went over to the instrument on the massive desk at the other side of the room, and stood listening for a moment or so. The call was from his own office in Newcastle. Lord Tankerton sat wearily looking into the fire, pondering over his difficulties and not heeding the conversation at all. So, when Sir Charles rang off and returned to his chair by the fire, he was surprised to see a look of amazement on his face.
" Well, of all the strange coincidences," gasped Sir Charles.
" What has happened ?" asked the other.
" It's that house-the one in Priory Terrace," said the lawyer. " There's been an offer for it ! Someone Wants to buy it. And they have agreed to our price!"
