"The following Monday morning, Myrtle headed off for the city. She got to the depot just before noon and found Phineas Barnaby at his desk doing paperwork. “Mr. Barnaby, I am Myrtle Blanchard, a nurse at the hospital near Jeffersville. I am trying to track down someone who is important to one of my patients, a Mr. Edward Smith.” Myrtle did not let on that she was related to Edward by marriage, because she felt that if she played on her hospital affiliation, she was more likely to get an honest result from Barnaby."
