"What did he say?" asked Frankie curiously.
"He said: 'Why didn't they ask Evans?'"
"What a funny thing to say. Nothing else?"
"No. He just opened his eyes and said that -- quite suddenly -- and then died, poor chap."
"Oh, well," said Frankie, turning it over in her mind, "I don't see that you need worry. It wasn't important."
"No, of course not. Still I wish I'd just mentioned it. You see, I said he'd said nothing at all."
"Well, it amounts to the same thing," said Frankie. "I mean it isn't like 'Tell Gladys I always loved her,' or 'The will is in the walnut bureau,' or any of the proper romantic Last Words there are in books."
