Grantham Waldron was preparing to retire for the evening when a phone interrupted his plans. His valet informed him it was a Mary Sinkler who wanted desperately to speak with him. This astonished Waldron because that young woman had been his fiancee several years before but had married some one else after the relationship ended. What surprised Waldron even more was that she had died two years before the phone call!
