THIRTY-EIGHT
IMPRESSIONS IN THE COURT

For a time the next morning, the feeling of the court was less hostile. Martineau's evidence had raised doubts in some onlookers; and they responded to Getliffe's new zest. Jack's examination went smoothly and he soon made a good impression. The touch of genuine diffidence in his manner seemed to warm people, even in court, to his frank, spontaneous, fluent words. As he answered Getliffe, I thought again how there was a resemblance between them.

He gave an account of his positions in the years before they bought the agency -- he was twenty-nine, a year older than he used to tell us in the past. He said of the transaction over the agency:

"I wanted money very badly, I'm not going to pretend anything else."

"About the information you gave to people when you were borrowing money," said Getliffe, "that was never false?"

"No. I'd got a good thing to sell, and I was selling it for all I was worth."

"You told them what you believed to be the truth?"

"Yes. Naturally I was as enthusiastic as I could honestly be."

"You were certain it was a good thing, weren't you?"

"I put every penny I had got into it, and I spent every working hour of my time improving it for months."

"You felt like that yourself after you had received Mr. Martineau's information?"

"Yes," said Jack. "If I'd heard -- for instance, that the circulation of the Arrow was much smaller -- I shouldn't have become as keen. But even so, I should have known there were possibilities."
