Finding the proof 1
Once she had established that the housekeeper really did keep to the ground floor Ilse slipped out after midnight to check out the easiest source of information. It took little time to find Doctor Tölpel’s house, and entering it was just as easy as before, but she still took care in case any traps had been set. Passing through to the Doctor’s dispensary she found his diaries by his desk just where she remembered. Searching back she found the entries for March 1780, here it was, “Born to the Duchess Maria a healthy baby boy, no complications” and a couple of days later “Mother and baby doing well, no need for daily visits” The jigsaw was beginning to fit together.
