“Here Candish came in. He brought the second post on a silver salver. There were letters; bills; and the morning paper — the paper that obliterated the day before. Like a fish rising to a crumb of biscuit, Bartholomew snapped at the paper. Giles slit the flap of an apparently business document. Lucy read a criss-cross from an old friend at Scarborough. Isa had only bills.”
