The 4.15 from Victoria to Lewes had been held up at Three Bridges in consequence of a derailment and, though John Lexman was fortunate enough to catch a belated connection to Beston Tracey, the wagonette which was the sole communication between the village and the outside world had gone. If you can wait half an hour, Mr. Lexman, said the station-master, I will telephone up to the village and get Briggs to come down for you. John Lexman looked out upon the dripping landscape and shrugged his shoulders. I'll walk, he said shortly and, leaving his bag in the station-master's care and buttoning his mackintosh to his chin, he stepped forth resolutely into the rain to negotiate the two miles which separated the tiny railway station from Little Tracey.
