LFR May 13 Number 514

Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 


The next day after breakfast, Robert & Emma started to lay out a plan. First Robert went to the post-office and bought a large scale map of south Cornwall; next they went down to the telephone box and made a number of calls returning later in the day. “OK we start now, see if you can find William, I’ll look for Emily Brown they’ve got to be here somewhere.”

Robert and Emma went together as far as the harbour then split up agreeing to meet back there in an hour, Emma soon spotted William he was in the little boat bobbing about like a cork on the water she called to him and waved her arms but he neither heard or noticed her.

Robert went up to the churchyard and searched all around but found no sign of Emily Brown, William or Rufus but just as he descended the cliff path Socks appeared in front of him. “Take me to Emily Brown” he asked the cat who immediately led him down the steps then into a narrow alley he’d not noticed coming up, it was more of a narrow cleft in the rocks hidden by ferns and after just a few paces opened out into an open meadow and there in the middle was the cottage he’d seen before, Robert wondered how it could be when it was on a steep cliff then suddenly Emily Brown appeared at the door with a basket of washing then disappeared.

“Hello, I say you took me by surprise.” Said a voice behind him and turning he found Emily Brown, with socks the cat at her side.”What can I do for you today.” She asked.

“It’s about Rufus and Mariah”. Robert said “I have a plan.”

“Rufus who?” she replied. Then she remembered “Oh yes, that Rufus.”

“Well, go on then” she snapped, she continued more gently “What are we going to do. I love intrigues, don’t you?”

“Ok - Meet me at the Church gate at Midnight with Rufus, I’ll have some transport, we have a long journey to do”
