Inc. XXV TT was about a week later thai •*• I slumblcd on tlie Brooklyn address. I'd been going through those papers of Boggio's, and in a comparlment of the lealhcr briefcase had corne upon a small cn- felope wilh a Yale key in it The address) was in Boggio's handwriting.' Ordinarily I wouldn't have worried about it. But what intrigued me was the fact thai the address was in Ihe neighborhood ot Harris, Ferguson & Co. What was Boggio doing with a key to a place in that district? And what kind of a place could it be? 'Tito key seemed never io have been used. It was probably a du: plicate, Wit the fact lhal Boggio kept it in his portfolio proved ils importance. Throughout the day I kept trying lo dismiss the matter from my .mind, but it was no use. At about 4 o'clock I decided to go and see for myself. It wasn't hard lo find Ihe place which was a stone's Ihrow from Ihc Brooklyn side of Brooklyn bridge. I musl have passed in front of it dozens of times without giving it a second look when I was working at Harris, Ferguson & Co. You wcnl around the corner from Ihcir store and up a:i alley barely wide enough for a truck to go through. Then you faced a desolate looking building in wcalhcrbcaten brick and lime- "sfono that might have been n smal\ factory or warehouse in its lime. It looked as if it had been abandoned for the past few years. Then it all came back to me. This alley was where I'd first met Boggio. I walked up to the big double cioors to find them securely locked and boiled. There were also n . couple of windows lighlly boarded up and so deeply covered wilh dirl and soot tot they looked like a pai'l ot the wall. Kul I finally mail side door in slightly belter shape than the rest of the building. It had a Yale lock. I took the key from the envelope in my packet and slid it in easily. * * « r pIIE interior of the place was in A pilch darkness. I lit a match and groped around until I lound a lighl switch.' A naked bulb suspended from a low beam barely illuminated a smaH'seclion of the building. There were some emply packing cases nealty slacked against the far wall. The light was too feeble for me to make out the lettering so I lit another match. Before it burned out I'd seen enough to know that all those cases had once contained liquor. And I'd also seen"something else,'the dim outline of a circular staircase rising vertically to the lop of the building. I starled lo climb the wooden steps. The first few creaked and the others let out a hollow sound that echoed loudly Ihrougli the place. I must have made about seven complete turns before reaching Hie gallery that gave onlo a series of rooms, probably offices in Ihc .days when this had been a factory. Cautiously I walked along Ihc gallery and peered into several of Ihe rooms. They were all cmply. In one of thorn the wallpaper had become unstuck and was drooping down. A couple more had no doors. But it was Ihc one at ihe end that attracted my altention for its door was closed. My heart began pounding as I slowly lurncd Ihe handle. The door wasn't locked and it swung open with ils hinges creaking. There was just enough light from the bulb downstairs to help me find Iho switch. . I .wasn't exactly' prepared lor the spectacle now revealed. It was a'large;room, with a camp cot against one'.„ \yal.l,.and. a_ dresser the foot ol the cot. In a corner was a wash basin, and neatly stacked in cartons were cans of food: soups, vegelablcs, meat products, and condensed milk. Enough to last a person for several weeks. The stuff could be healed on an Heclric plaie that stood on a small table. Some dishes, a knife and n fork and a couple of Uilchen lowels completed Ihc domestic T'D seen all I wanted. I turned out - Ihe . light, and clattered down Ihe rickety winding staircase. The ^lace was beginning lo give me the creeps. ' Outside it was getting dark ami I breathed deeply as the cool air lit my face. I walked down Fulton slrcet and enlered a store wilh the sign: "Keys Made While U Wail." I losscd Ihe Yale on the counlcr. "How long lor a duplicalc of '{ovmd what I was looking for: a across from it7 < ftyo~grTps"stop'cl' ai "A lew minutes," said the lock-' smith. "Cost Jou two bits." "Okay. I'll be back." I wenl into a beer parlor at Ihe :orner and called up Ihe office. There were no messages, so I lold Miss Carr to go home. It was almost 6 and 1 thanked her lor hav- ng waited. • After gulping down a glass of beer I went back to the locksmith's. My key was finished and I decided to return to. Ihe office and put Boggio's back where it belonged. . ., It was the rush hour in the sub- V way and I became wedged close to a'girl who looked strangely like Mickey. She must have wondered . why I kept staring at her and finally turned around, embar- barassed. All the lliings that had happened since my departure from Hollywood had prevented me Irom giving Mickey much thought. Not having beard from me-, she'd probably imagined I'd forgotlen her.. . Back in (he office I put the original key in, its place ,but I couldn't concenlrale on the work I'd planned. Mickey's imago kept \ coming back to me and so, acting on a sudden impulse, I sat down to write hor n lefler. '•:" (fo Be"Continued) ~ ;
