84

“I am eighty-four years old. You will understand, therefore, that in an emergency of this sort I am compelled to use my brain and other people’s energies to protect myself and my household. I must also guard against such emotions as anger, grief or excitement which I have not now the strength to support.”

— Caroline Faraday speaking to Albert Campion in Police at the Funeral (1931) by Margery Allingham
