He looked round hurriedly to assure himself that he had left no traces of his visit, and then stepped over to the door. He pulled it open boldly and peered out. There was not a soul in sight, not a sound to be heard anywhere in the great house save the far away clatter of a typewriter in a distant part of the building. With silent speed he closed the door behind him and set off.
He tiptoed across the wide marble floor, past the splashing fountain, and reached the head of the stairs. A second's pause there, with his head cocked over the balustrade, and he was slipping down the stairs ; his boots padding softly on the thick pile of the carpet. Over the next landing he went without pausing in his stride. Neck or nothing was his slogan ; luck had been with him so magnificently up till then that he scarcely cared what happened. There was still his wonder-working uniform to fall back on ; and if any suspicious servant should happen to notice him and demand explanations, there was still a chance of catching his man unawares and making a sudden rush.
