He went to the chamber-cupboard, searched under the paper and pulled out the lipstick he had stolen from the shop in Salisbury. He looked at it carefully and saw that it had 'Sang de Rose' written on it in very peculiar lettering, which reminded him of nothing so much as white worms wriggling in and out of angular lattice-work.
