Cunning as a fox

Dear Mr Browne

I am most grateful to you for taking the trouble to write to me regarding the matter of my brooch.

Rather than send you 30 guineas to release the brooch from the establishment you mention, I have decided to accept the offer of free accommodation which you made last November, as I am sure you will recall. I shall come to Clacton one day next month. I trust you will be good enough to accompany me to the shop in question, where I fully expect the proprietor to tell me exactly how he came to be in posession of my property.

I will send word as to the exact date of my arrival, as I intend to combine the trip with a visit to some good friends in London.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Josiah Hatherwick
