Author : Alvin Addison
"To be plain, I do not believe Duffel's wealth was honestly obtained, or is honestly held. You have heard of
the Secret Gang of Horse Thieves, I suppose. Well, I overheard this immaculate Duffel of yours, without any
intention on my part, conversing with a 'hale fellow well met,'--no other than the stranger you yourself
suspected of being a villain--and from the tenor of their remarks, they belong to some clique of rascals. I
could not gather a very distinct idea as to what the organization was formed to accomplish, for I could not
hear all that was said; but I learned enough to satisfy myself that all was not right. I had not mentioned the
circumstance before, for the simple reason that I wished to obtain stronger evidence against the parties, but
you have my secret--act upon it as you think best."
