Meredith realized that, though his "language was flippant, , Yves was quite serious about it, / : "Could you find the other quarter of a' mil lion Y" asked Meredith.

After a pause, Sir John rejoined with, "Well, the thing for me to. do is to see whether I can find the. Su- lungu necklace, as well as digging up: the 1 murderer, of poor Pennyfeather."

The -door opened and/they found themselves looking at a bowing, little, white-clad, Suluhgeae whose Mongoloid face was split by an enormous grin of ingratiating welcome.
