There are evident signs that Mister Dupray's horse has been prepared for a journey, and that the traces of its hoofprints are a few days old. They lead to the main road which takes one in the direction of London; at that point the road is much too disturbed by heavy traffic to allow tracking.

The garden and its secret entrance to the chambers below remain as they were when last encountered.

"Could he have received urgent news of his sister?" Ines ventures? "It is London where she was taken, yes?"

"That's my suspicion too," says Henry. "Let's search for a letter. The study would be a good place to start."

Having made the suggestion, Doctor North investigates the study.

Tossed in with several manuscripts in Mister Dupray's handwriting, primarily poetry of a rather dark and brooding nature, are a few letters from Paris. Miss Davenport is able to translate these from French. They deal with arrangements made by Mister Dupray concerning a journey to that city. Most informative are lines indicating that Miss Dupray, having made an ingenious escape from Bedlam, is thought to have crossed the Channel, destination and purpose unknown.

Lila frowns. "I myself have been considering a journey back to the continent, especially in light of recent rumours pertaining to preternatural forces on the rise there. 'Twould be as well that one might attempt to ensure the safety of these two poor souls also."

"Indeed," says Henry. "It would seem that a trip to Paris is in order. We should make preparations at once."

Lila turns to Ines, knowing the Gypsy lacks the financial means of herself and Doctor North. "We should be pleased to pay for your passage if you wish to accompany us overseas. The ways of Paris are somewhat removed from London, and your European heritage may prove of assistance."

"I would be glad to help how I can," replies Ines.

"Excellent" says Elizabeth when told of the planned trip, "Paris, and a chance to freshen up my wardrobe, as well as a chance to practice my French". Obviously the news of the trip has brightened her day despite her concerns for Antoine and his sister.
