A young widow imprisoned by her family sends an ingenious message to Gamadge, who neatly rescues her and then takes on her case --her family were intending to have her committed to a mental institution because she insisted her husband's death and her own ear-death were not suicide and attempted suicide by murder and attempted murder. It turns out that a set of letters written by a Victorian poet ("Garthwain" suggesting William Morris) to her husband's late grandmother has been secretly sold, and her husband had discovered this. Gamadge quite quickly fids out the guilty party --with a twist at the end. I was struck by the efficiency of the sory --the whole story runs only 144 pages --other authors might easily have doubled the length. I prefer brevity myself. I notice recurring motifs in these stories -- hints of suspected insanity and the greed of the genteel poor. ( )
