She looked at each of us in turn but did not ofTcr lo shake hands or invite us to sit down. Indeed, throughout the whole short, incredible interview— I thought of it as an interview, and not a cnll or visit—she did nothing that nn ordinary woman would do. . She said, "I want to thank you for what you did for my husband." There was no obvious emotion behind those words. Why had she not said "for what you did for Walter?" • Jerry wns muttering something like "sorry we could not have come sooner, been of some real use," but his expression, the tone of his voice startled me. 1 had lived loo long with him not lo know when he wns being nnt- \iral nnd when not. Decidedly, this wns not any side of his character that I knew. He was on the defensive, iinrl not because ol the awkwardness of the situation. And H wns more than de- fcnsivcncsK, It was on awareness of dnngcr. He was like n mnn who. dining with the BorRlns. has Jurl felt the harsh rnsp ol the imiKon in the wine hill socks to > cooc M i wb* b. M jNltag. She kept on looking at him until Jerry began to flush. And as I watched tier I saw something happen to her face The vacancy of her look began to disappear. Interest came into her eyes. "Yes." she said, "you were brave. Both of you." The second sentence sounded like an afterthought. We deprecated her praise, told her it wns nothing. She turned to me and said directly, "He was dead when you found him?" "Yes." Jerry spoke swiftly, emphatically. "I want to tell you, Mrs. LcNormand, that when we first saw him his face was very calm. I am sure he suffered no agony at all. The—the details arc horrible, I know, but I have the feeling that he must have died without pain." "H helps lo know that," she said carefully. After a momcnl. still looking al Jerry, she went on. "I cannot understand his death. There is no reason for it." Prcxy said, "You mustn't think about it." She turned to Jerry again with a curious intensity. "It will seem n foolish woman's question to you, Mr. Lister, but he didn't leave any message, any note, niiything to explain what happened to him?" Jerry shook his head. "There was nothing, Mrs. LeNormand." "No,' she said. "Of course not But sometimes when lie was staying all night with his telescope, working, he sent mo notes to sny that he would not be home. If there was such a note ns that, I should like lo know of it." • * • NKVKH once in Jerry's picture Ua DM U to* man had i ** to* tuted by NEA Sorkt/lnc. idea that he was capable of thinking of anything or anyone else a f ter he once started to work. It was impossible to think of him writing: "Darling—can't make it home for supper. Don't wait up for me; I'll be here late." , "There, wasn't any note," I blurted out. "We looked at his papers. They were just some equations." "Ah," she said quickly, and her tone did not quite convey disappointment. And then, after a moment, "You mean, just notes about his work?" "Yes," Prexy said gently. "Mathematical symbols." "Thank you." Her voice was still perfectly level. "I should like to have the last things he used and wrote." It was a nat- iral sort of request, but somehow it surprised he a little. 'I'm afraid the police will have to keep them, for a time at least." Prcxy sounded almost as •though he were explaining something to a child. ^ • * • IN the awkward pause that followed, Prcxy cleared his throat. "Mrs. LeN'ormand," he said, "if you would like me to get in touch with any member of your family, or his, make any —>er — - travel arrangements, I shall be only loo happy," She seemed for Ihc first time at a loss. "I do not know anything about Mr. LeNormand'i family." We were all deeply surprised, but Prcxy recovered himself quickly. "1 shall see what I can find out. Doubtless in England , . . And what nbout your own family?" She shook hor head "1 have, no one to nuufy." - GUARANTEED "Always & Good E$ Guaranteed Watch Cleaning 3.50 36 Hour Service Your watch Is completely disassembled—all pivots polished —springs adjusted and machine cleaned.
