THE RED SEAL

by Natalie Sumner Lincoln


CHAPTER I

IN THE POLICE COURT

Te Assistant District Attorney glanced down at the papers in his
hand and then up at the well-dressed, stockily built man occupying
the witness stand.  His manner was conciliatory.

"According to your testimony, Mr. Clymer, the prisoner, John
Sylvester, was honest and reliable, and faithfully performed his
duties as confidential clerk," he stated.  "Just when was Sylvester
in your employ?"

"Sylvester was never in my employ," corrected Benjamin Augustus
Clymer.   The president of the Metropolis Trust Company was noted
for his precision of speech.  "During the winter of 1918 I shared
an apartment with Judge James Hildebrand, who employed Sylvester."

"Was Sylvester addicted to drink?"
 
"No."
