Helm writes that he received four affidavits from the postmaster that morning.
"Now the fly is in the ointment, Lady Russell had on Friday got on to my wife on unmercifully at me being away on Friday morning (although I had her permission to go) and on Saturday morning tackled me, and I can assure you we had a good do, with the result that we hope to finish here on Saturday first." He informs Coward, Chance that Dora suspects something is going on, but is not sure what, and he tries to make alternative arrangements to go to Petersfield.
He mentions that he talked with Hines that morning, and informed him that "... a most valuable witness, was a man named Marshall who was for a time kitchen man and who Hines says used to sleep at times with different maids; Mrs. Russell knew this of Marshall but dare not row with him as she was doing the same with men about the place."
