CHAPTER VII - THE SUSPICIOUS TRAMP-STEAMER

LORD TANKERTON and his son Gerry were staying the night in their town house in Eldon Square. It saved them the rather tiring journey down into the country at a late hour. And they often used it on such occasions. After they had rid themselves of their coats and wraps (for the night was chilly), they went into the cosy library and sat down before the big log fire for a final " nightcap."
" I say," cried Gerry impulsively, " that was jolly news about Molly Finch coming home so soon. She hasn't been here since I got home last August."
" The Commander seems a bit anxious about it," said the peer. " She should have stayed in Brussels till next Christmas shouldn't she ?"
" Yes !" answered Gerry. " But it'll be fine to see her again. Letters are such unsatisfactory things !"
Lord Tankerton looked over at his son under cover of his glass, as he took a sip of his " Scotch and soda."
" You seem rather interested in Molly, don't you ?" he ventured.
" Oh," said Gerry airily, " she's not so bad. But I say, Father," he went on, changing the subject into a safer channel, " don't you think it very foolish of Sir Robert to take those plans home at nights ?"
" Why? " demanded the older man. "No one knows that they are the designs of the Queen Mab.
