Has he seen it?
outside his own store on 38th street
I thought I sold everything
J.P. so we kept it.
Neely Department Store.
N, N, N, N...
Natural Foundry, Napex Corporation....
You still own it.
This dummy doesn't look like me.
Maybe it's supposed to be one of you.
There's a sign on the dummy with your name on it.
M-E-R-R...That's all you can see.
What's been done about this?!
He fired the ring leader...
and half-a-dozen of the employees
who participated in it.
Have this picture enlarged!
And everybody, even watching it, fired.
An excellent suggestion, J.P.
I pay you a great deal to take care
of my interests and my privacy
I want privacy.
This is temporary, J.P.
I own this piddly investment?
thing out in no time.
We have a man who is an expert.
If you care to speak with him...
that really has no significance.
I want to talk to this...detective.
Good day, gentleman.
Good day, JP. Goodbye.
Good day, JP. Good day, sir.
There's a detective here for you to interview.
This way, sir.
What's your name?
What progress have you made, Higgins?
I uh, I've gotten a job in the store.
Not even the general manager
To Whom It May Concern:
and is accountable only to me.
Neely's Department Store.
That's the hotbed.
No. Crumple them for a change.
Tell me. How soon could you find out
Not more than two or three weeks.
Why not two or three days?
I have to worm my way into their confidence.
Become one of them.
How do I know what they are going to do
in the next two or three weeks?
while you worm your way into their confidence.
It's a very difficult assignemnt.
Fire anyone that's even suspicious.
You don't have to be accurate.
Well I...I haven't really started.
My wife's having a baby in Philadelphia.
That's where I live.
And I thought I'd go home tomorrow.
I'll get someone else for this assignment.
That's very considerate of you, Mr Merrick.
Nothing at all. I'll just keep this
card for the next fellow. Good day.
I'm very grateful to you for your kindness.
Poughkeepsie? Yes, sir.
Good day, sir.
I want you to tell me the truth, George.
In a business way?
