电影摘要："Oh, let's don't go into that again."
"What!" cried Barbarossa. "In writing?""I'll tell you what I know. As I said, I was not in Mr. Gyde's full confidence—no man was. Indeed I knew him but slightly. He was a good customer of the bank, but he did everything in his own peculiar way. He rented a large vault from us, and had the locks changed under his own supervision. I believe he kept the major part of his securities there, but he may have other vaults too."Wait!" said Jack. "You must introduce me as Mr. Robinson.""Now that was nice of you!"
"I don't see how you put up with him!" said Miriam.Jack shook his head."Where have you been?" asked Jack.So he made a careless excuse and left them. Bobo did not mind, of course, but an ugly shadow flitted over Miss Culbreth's fair countenance.
Jack received this with a smile. He was thinking: "You are not Mrs. Norman yet, my lady!"As always, this announcement produced a well-nigh magical effect.This time they broke in the door without ado. At his first glance inside Jack saw that the room had been visited. Though he had been away but little more than half an hour, a clean sweep had been made of the cards and papers. A still smoldering fire in the grate showed the manner of their disposal. The window on the fire escape was open."We must often consult together, and decide what is best for Bobo," she went on sweetly. "And if he won't do things that you think he ought, I'll add my influence. And then I'll get you to help me with him when I need you."Bobo blushed painfully.
"He's a thief! He stole my pocketbook!"He nodded."Ya-ah!"
But at the sound of their coming, the erect man turned, and Jack saw that it was Delamare with face pale but composed.
Chapter 39"Katy, dear, can't you give me one word to go on?"
"How do you mean?""Some name, 'Bo!""—where the old man sleeps. You say you are sure he doesn't occupy his bed in the Madagascar, but I haven't been able to find out anything to the contrary. Apparently he comes down from his room to give me dictation. He never has me up there, though I have complained about the noise down-stairs, etc. I got in touch with the chambermaid that does up his room, as you suggested. She doesn't suspect that the bed is not slept in every night. I understood that she has to make it up in the mornings, like all the other beds. So I think you are mistaken in saying that suite is a blind. Give me a little more time and I will make sure through one of the clerks (with whom I am friendly) if S.G. has another suite somewhere in the hotel."Why is it he won't draw even the smallest of checks unless you are there?"Evers began to lay out the implements of his trade. While he worked he talked uninterruptedly.At Thirty-Fourth street the line was held up again. The whistle had just blown, and this promised to be a longer stoppage. Jack jumped out of the taxi, and ran ahead down the line with fast beating heart.
