TWENTY-FIVE
CONVERSATIONS AT NIGHT

Roy, quiet and self-effacing, brought in a tray of drinks and again left us alone.

"By the way," I said, "does Eden know about these -- inquiries?"

"I've not told him."

"Oughtn't you to?"

"It's obviously quite unnecessary," George said. "If these policemen have the sense to keep quiet, there's no reason why he should know. And if -- we have to take other circumstances into account, Eden can be told quickly enough. I see no reason to give him the pleasure until it's compulsory."

"I think he ought to be told," I said. "This isn't too large a town, you know. Eden comes across people in the Chief Constable's office every day."

"That would be a breach of privilege."

"Yes," I said. "But it happens -- and it would be wiser for you to tell Eden than for someone who doesn't know you."

His face was heavy and indrawn.

"You see," I tried to persuade him, "there's a good deal that can be done, if they want to inquire any further. You know that as well as I do. If Eden gives me authority, I could stop quite a few of their tricks. If you heard of anyone in your present position -- the first advice you'd give, of course, would be for them to arrange with a solicitor----"

George said:

"I don't propose to discuss the matter with Eden." He added: "You can tell him yourself if you're so anxious."

"You give me premission?" I said.

"I suppose so."
