gentlemen restless

more than usual I mean.

Well, our patients

are all tucked up

for the night

now, hey Brunton?

Are they?

Of course, of course.

Aren't they?

Captain Vickery isn't

in his room, sir,

and it looked like

Major Langford

I saw going

toward the pool.

And I can't account for

Lieutenant Clavering.


That's very odd.

Very odd, sir.

Anything else, sir.

No, thank you.

Oh, yes, yes.

You might tell Dr. Sexton

that I'd like to see him

for a minute, will you?

Very good, sir.

Good night, sir.

Good night, Brunton.

Get him up and let's get

him in this chair here.


I'm awfully sorry.

Get my bag, Brunton.

Yes sir.

Let's have a look.

Yes, near thing just

missed an artery.

Looks like a knife wound.

Here you are, sir.

It's like a nightmare.

Give me some of that

cotton and bottle.

Oh, no, fellow,

we'll have you patched

up in no time.

You'll be as good as new.

What happened?

I, I don't know.

It was in Lime

Walk just now.

I was coming up

from the village.

I remember distinctly

I was approaching

the greenhouse.

The wind was terrific.

I had to fight my way.

I hadn't the

slightest warning.

All I know is

that he struck

and that I went down.

He must have thought

I was done for.

Any idea who it was?


Well, that is I...

Yes, yes...

Really I,

I haven't any right.

You have every

right, Dr. Sexton.

As head of this house,

I shall arrange for an

immediate investigation.

I'd rather not if

you don't mind, sir.

Dr. Sexton,

the fact that my brother

and sister and I

have opened our home to

convalescent patients

doesn't relieve us

of all responsibility

for what occurs in it.

I mean, under the

peculiar circumstances.

Oh, come on, Bob.

There's no need

to shield anyone.


Thirteen, that's curious.
