Chief Medical Examiner's journal

Tuesday, June 18:

At that moment, we heard footsteps outside, and Dr. Wilkins, Mrs. Inglethorp's own doctor, a portly, fussy little man, came bustling in.
In a few words Dr. Bauerstein explained how he had happened to be passing the lodge gates as the car came out, and had run up to the house as fast as he could, whilst the car went on to fetch Dr. Wilkins. With a faint gesture of the hand, he indicated the figure on the bed.
"Ve-ry sad. Ve-ry sad," murmured Dr. Wilkins.

Agatha Christie, writing in The Mysterious Affair at Styles, 1920.
