"I'm one of the few who read it," says Alice. "It was your best work yet, Henry. I wonder how Dr. Cazlab - I mean, Dr. Balzac - is doing."

As Harrison gets up to show Georgia out, he notices Alice, Henry and Isadora sitting at a nearby table.
Harrison excuses himself. "Georgia, I see some friends here that I would like to talk to. I'll be in touch soon."

Walking over to the table, Harrison greets the others. "Greetings. I was going to say I hope you've all been well but it seems as if something has happened. May I inquire as to why you appear to be in mourning, Isadora?

Henry Glynn

Henry unfolds the paper.

"Patsy Ruth Miller got married. Don't you think she has a look of Alice? We mean this though."

Henry points to the article about the murder.

Isadora Carmichael

"Poor Margaret," Isadora whispers. She's not crying anymore. "We are planning a visit."

"I knew her from work," says Alice, "and Henry has met her before, but Isadora is closer to her than either of us. I never would have thought she could do anything like this!"

"Do you suspect foul play? Harrison says quietly. "Sometimes when you've seen things like we have, it messes with your mind."

"It's foul play either way," says Alice, "but I know what you mean. I haven't heard of Margaret meddling with such things, but it's possible. Or perhaps her husband was doing the meddling. Or perhaps something meddled with them."

"Shall we head over to the sanatorium then? Perhaps Isadora should be the one to see Margaret though - that's if they will let her."

"Yes, let's do that," says Alice. "Perhaps they'd let us all see Margaret. I can be very convincing."

Isadora Carmichael

"We can visit Elizabeth first. She needs out support as well, and perhaps can tell us more about what happened."

Isadora checks whether there is a phone booth in the cafe or nearby. She wants to look up Elizabeth, Margaret's sister, in the register.

"Yes, and we can also speak to Inspector Harden," says Alice. "He can help us find out about the police investigation and the autopsy, and he can be helpful for getting us in to see Margaret later."

"Do you mind if I come along? Harrison asks. "Maybe it's just my heightened sense of dread but something about this just doesn't seem right."

Alice makes a call to Arkham PD. Detective Harden is working the case, and agrees to talk to the companions. He asks them to come to the police station that evening at 7 pm.

Spoiler:
I will start a new thread later.

Spoiler:
I’m sorry, I missed that! Elizabeth lives / lived at the same address as her brother and sister-in-law. If anyone telephones, there is no answer.
