Penfield flushed as one of the jurors snickered, but he did not
repeat his previous question, asking instead, "Was there good

"When did you last see Mr. Turnbull?" inquired Penfield.
"He was at the house on Sunday and I had quite a talk with him,"
McIntyre leaned back in his chair and regarded the neat crease in
his trousers with critical eyes. "I last saw Turnbull going out
of the street door."
