Mr. Trevelyan seems to consider my answer before he continues. “Did you know Miss Smail wrote the Ladies’ Association, and Miss Pigot went to Scotland after Miss Smail wrote her letter?”
“I knew Miss Smail wrote a letter, but I didn’t connect it with Miss Pigot’s departure.”
“Did you know the contents of Miss Smail’s letter?” Mr. Trevelyan asks.
If I say no, would anyone be the wiser? I can’t take the risk. “Colonel Walker read part of it aloud while I was at his home.”
“Which part?” Mr. Trevelyan asks.
“The part referring to the filthy state of the house.”
“Is that all you remember?”
“It’s what I most remember.” Please stop.
Mr. Trevelyan plants himself in front of the witness box. “Nothing else?” he purrs. “Are you sure? Remember you’re under oath.”
“I heard another part,” I admit. “It seemed to refer to a flirtation between Miss Pigot and Mr. Wilson.”
