How long does it take for that idiot?
- He can't hold out much longer.

of my property and my revenues,
Gwendolin Francis Gilmore.
Otherwise he'd never have missed
his father's death.
Since no will and testament has been

bearing certificates of your identity.
You'll see the judge at the Town Hall
in Greensmothing at 10 o'clock.
as you have filled them out. Good day.
- Good day.
So, that's how it is. If you want
Darkwood Hall for your boarding school,
Since there isn't any will, we'll wait!
- Just a minute!
Where did you get the idea
that there was no will?
This is only a photo-stat, of course.
I did it myself, actually.
Quite good, don't you think?
The will was in the notary's car.
It was destroyed!
No, no! Otherwise, how did I get it?
- Can you prove the contrary?
What does it say? Let me see!
everything else - all property,
investments, as both real and on paper,
in other words, our father's entire

Do you mean Gwendolin?
- Yes. Gwendolin!
The daughter of our brother, Reginald,
who's now residing in jail.
Does Gwendolin know?
- No. And she won't find out...
if you keep quiet and if I destroy
the will and the copy I have.

I was thinking of you. Will you sign it?
- That's a lot to ask all of a sudden!
Give us a little more time.
Yes, it's only fair!
- Sure. Just as you like.
And we'll meet again in a week.
You are very sure of yourself.
Aren't you, Richard?
