He had checked off the Commander's story that she had left by a night boat for Ostend and found that such a boat actually did sail that night, though he had not traced Molly herself. He had not come across her father since that night he knocked him up-when he shouted down from the upstairs window so angrily-the very night he said he had seen her off to Brussels, and the same night Molly herself had spent under the roof of her strange captor.
Of course, Gerry knew nothing of these other things ; and it was with a very anxious mind that he sought out the Commander. It was now four days since that strange night, and his anxiety had got the better of him by this time. This enforced delay was dangerous.
Rather to his annoyance he learned from the maid at Priory Terrace that her master was not at home, nor could she say when he would be back. She did not know where he was, but understood him to say he was going to London. Feeling that his journey had been for nothing, Gerry decided to visit Colonel Kenton.

The talk was general for awhile, then :
" How did you get on with the Comte ?" Gerry asked suddenly.
There was a sudden crash-Madelaine Kenton had (Iropped her cup ! All the blood had drained out of her face and she looked like a ghost.
