      1. But just then Emma called me, said whatever was I up to? and I went up again and then, afterwards, I heard the master had shot himself and, of course, it was so awful it just drove everything out of my head. But later, when that police Inspector had gone I said to Emma, I said, I didn't say anything about Mr. Carter having been up with the master this morning, and she said was he, and I told her, and she said well, perhaps I ought to tell, but anyway I said I'd better wait a bit, and she agreed, because neither of us didn't want to get Frank Carter into trouble if we could help. And then, when it came to the inquest and it come out that the master had made that mistake in a drug and really had got panicky and shot himself, quite natural-like – well, then, of course, there was no call to say anything. But reading that piece in the paper two days ago – oh! it did give me a turn! And I said to myself, if he's one of those loonies that thinks they're persecuted and goes round shooting people, well, then maybe he did shoot the master after all!"
