THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

He knew that the Chief had ways and means of his own of getting information, and that he frequently got hold of facts that were not available to the ordinary officer at the Yard. And so far as he himself had been able to form an opinion, he was prepared to back Mercia Lyall's high-mindedness of action against the whole Force.
" H'm !" he said ruminatively. " We shall have to see about that."
Shaughnessy came swinging in through the door.
" Letter for you," he said, with a broad grin, and tossed something on the table. " Number 36, I believe. Posted at Hammersmith. Delivered to Finger-Prints in error."

Delbury snatched it up with a hand that shook. He ran a stiff thumb-nail over the perforations and opened it.
For ten seconds there was a dead silence in the room as he read the message down. His brow contracted lower and lower over his deep-set eyes as he read. When he got to the end he tossed the card on the table and looked up at the Irishman.
