"On the fourteenth of this month did you have occasion to go to the house of Hartley Basset?"

"I show you this piece of paper and ask you whether that is the same piece of paper."

"Your Honor," the district attorney said, "there have been some rather startling, although not entirely unexpected, developments in connection with this case, and in connection with another matter which, while not directly involved, is nevertheless related to it. In view of this other matter, it will be necessary for me to ask for a brief adjournment of this hearing within approximately an hour."

"On the fourteenth of this month did you have occasion to go to the house of Hartley Basset?"

Before Mason could say anything Burger, raising his voice, said, "The defense can have no objection, because one of the first witnesses who will be called by the Grand Jury is none other than Perry Mason, the attorney for the defendants."

"Did you make tests to determine whether the type-writing on this paper was written by the machine in which the paper was found?"

Perry Mason nodded his head almost imperceptibly and then flashed her a swift wink.

Judge Winters frowned.

"Your name is George Purley, and you are now and for some time past have been employed as a fingerprint and handwriting expert with the police department?"

Burger went on, "I feel that I am violating no confidence, your Honor, in stating that this matter is one which is being investigated by the Grand Jury and it will be necessary for me to appear before the Grand Jury."

"Your name is George Purley, and you are now and for some time past have been employed as a fingerprint and handwriting expert with the police department?"

Before Mason could say anything Burger, raising his voice, said, "The defense can have no objection, because one of the first witnesses who will be called by the Grand Jury is none other than Perry Mason, the attorney for the defendants."

"George Purley," Burger announced.

Mason said in slow, level tones, "Your Honor, that remark was uncalled for and unnecessary. I hold in my hand a subpoena to appear before the Grand Jury, a subpoena which very apparently was held in the hands of a deputy sheriff and could have been served at any time prior to the convening of court. Yet that paper was served at a signal from the district attorney, and purely for the purpose of letting the Court and the spectators know publicly that I was being called as a witness before the Grand Jury. It was merely a grandstand play."

District Attorney Burger turned to one of the deputy sheriffs and nodded his head.

Perry Mason nodded his head almost imperceptibly and then flashed her a swift wink.

"Did you notice a piece of paper on which type-writing appeared, and which was in the typewriter?"

"Your Honor," the district attorney said, "there have been some rather startling, although not entirely unexpected, developments in connection with this case, and in connection with another matter which, while not directly involved, is nevertheless related to it. In view of this other matter, it will be necessary for me to ask for a brief adjournment of this hearing within approximately an hour."

Judge Winters banged his gavel.

"What did those tests show?"

"That will do, Mr. District Attorney," he said. "There will be no further personal remarks of that nature, and I can assure Counsel for the defense that the Court will not allow its decision to be influenced in the slightest by the comments of Counsel. Proceed with the case, gentlemen."

"Did you make tests to determine whether the type-writing on this paper was written by the machine in which the paper was found?"

Burger nodded perfunctory thanks and turned to the witness.

"What did those tests show?"

Perry Mason, holding the subpoena in his hand, turned to scan the faces of those in the courtroom. He caught the anxious, startled eyes of Della Street on the outskirts of the crowd. She raised a newspaper in her hand and gestured with it significantly.
