CHAPTER III - THE BODY ON THE SANDS

Among the most enthusiastic of these was Madelaine Kenton, the wife of the Colonel of the Garrison. A charming woman of about thirty-five, she had met her husband some five years before, when he was stationed in Malta. There were some who said she was not English-indeed, the wife of Commander Finch definitely asserted that she was French-but Mrs. Kenton herself had charmingly disarmed their suspicions by showing them a lovely miniature she always wore of a British officer, who she said was her father.
All of which just goes to show that the people of this little garrison town were just as human as most of others living in similar strata of society ; and on the whole they agreed very well among themselves.
Mrs. Kenton's enthusiasm alone, however, was no excuse for the intimacy which was to spring up later between the owner of No. 14 and herself, though the others did not know of it at the time. Herr Durkheim, the new tenant, was apparently of German nationality, though after Commander Finch had met him, he declared he was sure he was not a German by birth. He himself had spent several years in that country learning the language, so he ought to have known. Most of people were going by the fact that he was called Durkheim, which, " Mrs. Commander " had been heard to say, " meant nothing at all." And, after all, it was not anybody's business.
Priory Terrace was a little colony on its own. It was very exclusive. Its tall, substantially built, double-fronted houses made the letter " L," as they crowned the cliff overlooking the mouth of the river Tyne. The south limb of the " L" faced the river itself, whilst the other looked northwards over the river-mouth and out to the sea beyond. The only approaches were at the two extreme ends of the " L" Which were guarded by iron gates such as are seen at the entrances of drives to big mansions.
