AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Clever swindle by a mother and supposedly invalid daughter at an English seaside lodging house. Pretending to be unable to walk without assistance, the daughter stays at home on Regatta Day, and coincidentally the lady lodgers are robbed of jewellery etc. A maid who sees the daughter waltz in an unguarded moment, the careful landlady/narrator, and a canny detective catch the pair ... Slight. (PB)
