“Have you any doubt her dismissal was due to charges contained in the documents you forwarded?” Mr. Trevelyan asks.
“I’m sure that’s not true,” I say.
Mr. Trevelyan gives me a quizzical look before continuing. “Did you go to the orphanage last March to get information about this case?”
“Yes, I went with Mr. Fish.”
“Did you ask whether anyone saw Mr. James and Kali Churn Banerjee in Miss Pigot’s bathroom?”
“I asked if anyone saw or knew if Kali Churn Banerjee was in Miss Pigot’s bedroom or bathroom.”
“You didn’t mention Mr. James in connection with the bathroom,” Mr. Trevelyan says.
Justice Norris turns his head towards me. “See what evil results from your meddling,” Justice Norris says. “Not only has the linen of your church had to be washed in court, but you’ve dragged in Mr. James, a member, as I understand it, of another church.”
Why accuse me, Justice Norris? I didn’t ask the question.
