Inspector: Then we’ve got it fixed between 11:15 and 11:30. [Jots]
Now, sir, before we go further i’d like to see your butler and the footman that valets this gentleman.

[With distance] Very well, Inspector, only my butler has been with us from a boy.
Inspector: Quite so. This is just clearing ground, sir.

General, d’you mind touching that bell?

Why does De Levis strongly suspect Ronald Dancy of committing the theft? [4]



Inspector has came from New market police station. Inspector has fixed the time of theft between 11:15 and 11:30. He Was sure about the timing because of two reasons. Firstly, De Levis has gone to the bathroom after putting his watch under the pillow which is showing 11:15 at that time. Secondly, Winsor told the inspector that De Levis came to him informing about the theft at half-past eleven.

According to inspector the thief walked into the room through the creeper before the door was locked, probably while dinner was going on, and was under the bed and then he escaped by jumping from the balcony.

Robert told the inspector that he took De Levis’ clothes and boots at ten O’clock and didn’t came to room after that. He also told that at the time of theft he was in his room playing Bridge with his room-mates Thomas and Frederick.


Robert noticed that De Levis’ clothes were very good and out of pair of boots one was missing which he thought that De Levis have thrown it at a cat or something else.

De Levis strongly suspect Ronald Dancy of committing the theft because the distance from the railing on his balcony to the railing of Dancy’s balcony is just seven feet which anybody can jump if he can jump to a narrow book case at just four feet high, while standing on the floor. Also, he founds a bit of broken creeper lying in the balcony and the stem & inner comer of the creeper was crushed.

I take an interest, because, to tell you the truth, [Confidentially] I don’t like well, not to put too fine a point upon it Hebrews. They work harder; they’re more sober; they’re honest; and they’re everywhere. I’ve nothing against them, but the fact is they get on so.
Twisden: [Cocking an eye] A thorn in the flesh, Mr. Gilman.
Gilman: Well, I prefer my own countrymen, and that’s the truth of it.
