Sample text

There was an electric light fitted with no bulb, guarded by a small wire grille, and a rack with about six coat hooks, the purpose of which was obscure. As this seemed to complete the entire fixtures and fittings of our apartment, we were able to make a very careful inspection for a possible microphone, and to decide that if we kept our voices down it would be safe to talk. Outside the window we could see a narrow courtyard containing a lot more timber ready for chopping. There was a wall some 12 feet high and at the end on our right a big door the same height, leading to the main street of the town.

However, we wondered, as we did many times afterwards, whether most of the folk who had charge of us would have been jolly glad to learn that we had disappeared – and no questions asked! Dawn came at last, much earlier, or so it seemed to us, than it did in England. Perhaps that was because we had not been getting up very early of late, and so had not kept abreast of the rapid lengthening of the days. The guard drew the curtains and opened the window wide, an action which, once again, seemed to be very deliberate.

Indeed, it did turn out to be better fare than we were to get for some considerable time. There was a crude sofa by the side of the table and whilst we had not liked to get on this uninvited, our guard who was an old man, with a rather kindly face, indicated that we might use it. Jack and I sat down and tried to get some sleep with our heads rested on the table. Arthur, stretching his massive bulk onto all three chairs placed in a row, was soon snoring loudly. I only dozed fitfully, and during one of my wakeful periods I noticed that the old guard was fast asleep; I was tempted to wake the others and suggest that we make a bolt for it.
