Why don't we take my car

and drive out to see what happened?

I've got a call to make out that way.

If they're not there,

I'll get you back in time for the train.

You're very kind.

You won't be able to see the water

from Rosignol; too many trees between.

Trees and sunlight...

It's so quiet, you can almost hear it.

Dr. Winter said all I needed

was some rest and quiet.

You'll have plenty of that.

It's about all we get around here.

Sometimes I think we overdo it.

The only excitement is when

a visitor comes to town.

I think I'll drop by

Rosignol every day or so.

But I wouldn't think

of troubling you so.


It's the kind of trouble

everybody's looking for.

But don't forget I saw you first.

Here we are. There's Rosignol

How do you do? Are you Mr. Lamont?

No, my name is Sydney. I'm staying here.

I'm Dr. Grover. I brought you a visitor.

- Indeed

- Yes. This is Miss Leslie Calvin.

Mrs. Lamont's niece.

What a surprise!

What a delightful surprise

for your aunt and uncle!

- Oh, but I sent them a telegram.

- A telegram?

I don't recall them mentioning it.

Here, let me get your bag.

Then they're not expecting me?

Forgive me for keeping you standing.

Come in, come in.

There was no one to meet me

at the station.

And I tried to telephone

but the name wasn't listed.

So Dr. Grover brought me out.

Oh, how nice. How very nice of you.

You must stay for dinner.

Emily will be delighted. Emily!?


Did you come a long way Miss Calvin?


From Batavia.

Batavia, Emily!

Here's Leslie, all the way from Batavia.


My dear child!

Darling we've been so worried about you.

If we'd only known when you were coming.

- Norbert? Norbert?

- But I did send...

- Oh, excuse me. Dr. Grover,

this is Aunt Emily.

- How do you do?
