Becomes a master Crooks preying upon other thieves in arranging with a Quot Fence to dispose of a Box of jewels which he stole from the White Eagle a Crook Ainsley is overheard by swede to can Assn. A murderer in hiding. Thomassen comes to Ainsley a apartment and demands half of the jewels. He makes himself completely at Home in Ainsley a apartment and Waits for the Money. Ainsley telephones the White Eagle telling him that the Man who robbed him and a partner will be dividing the jewels at a Job clock in this Ainsley a apartment. Then he tries to hold Thomassen in his apartment until the White Eagle arrives. Now out with t Story and Thomassen was shrewd enough to realize that any attack upon me would be better deferred until just As he was leaving. My servant despite my instructions to Lier might come to the apartment. Elect rec Light inspectors the janitor a some one like this might Call and if i were not present to receive him embarrassment might arise for the hiding murderer. I had persuaded him that he should stay Here until ten of clock so i Felt fairly confident that he would make no attack upon me until shortly before that hour. And the Whit Eagle was due at nine. We dined the loathsome Thomassen and myself off viands that i prepared. And at a Quarter to nine we had finished and were smoking after dinner Cigar ets in my bedroom. I had advised sitting in tomorrows papers perhaps then you will then i went through my living room through the front door and took the stairs three at a time. Outside i hailed a taxi. As we drove into the Park i saw the White Eagle and Lotier emerge from the building. But there was no other taxi. They could escape but they could not catch me for both of which facts i was extremely glad for it had not been my plan to jeopardize the White Eagle i had merely intended to see that Justice was done to Thomassen. The Promise exacted from me prevented their defense. For the Money that thew represented meant Reli Billita Hon. The abandonment of this life and i was still Young enough to think that miracles do sometimes happen. Of course. Thomasseni a body would be found in my apartment. A the police would seek tor me. Suspicion would inevitably be aroused. Leedon might talk. Even in that excited moment of my escape i realized that matters would not be As easy As they would have been had not Thomassen come to blackmail me. Nevertheless i thought that they would be easy enough. I was a fool. But then i was a thief and a thief is a fool. But i did not look at future difficulties then. I was wondering if the White Eagle Reading Thomasson a identity in the Morrow s paper would appreciate the fact that i had deliberate made him an instrument of Justice. I thought that he would the French Ara notable for their romantic imagination. The White Eagle if he Klew All the facts would appreciate them and Admire me. Indeed i admired myself. I had extricated myself from a Nasty situation with credit. Certainly i consider that my execution of Thomasseni it was an execution is the most highly commendable act of my life. I had kept my word to a murderer but i had also kept Faith with myself. My respected forebears a might condemn my Mode of life but they would forgive me this chapter. For i had risked my own life rather than let Thomassen go free. I ask no Praise for the things i do Btu this time in the matter of Thomassen you must withhold your censure.
