MAJOR MARTIN, ROYAL MARINES

This letter also was signed by Lord Louis and, when put into an envelope with its enclosures, it fully justified Major Martin in using a briefcase in which to carry all his official documents.
But our problem over this point did not end here. We had found an excuse for presenting the official documents to the Spaniards in a way that allowed for any inefficiency on their part and made sure that the documents would be discovered, but had we been too clever? Just as we were congratulating ourselves on our ingenuity, a sudden qualm arose: how on earth were we to ensure that the body and the briefcase arrived in Huelva together? Although it might be possible to place the handle of the briefcase into Major Martin's hand, we could not take the risk, on this all-important point, that the fingers might open and let the briefcase be dragged away by the sea. I made enquiries about rigor mortis, but, when I had added the complication that the body would have been frozen and then allowed to thaw, it was clear that the imponderables were far too many.
The only solution which we could devise was one which did not appeal to us, because it was the only point in the whole "set-up" which did not ring true. We decided to assume that an officer who carried really secret and important papers might attach his briefcase to one of the leather-covered chains which some bank-messengers use-wearing them down their sleeves so they are not visible to the normal glance, but prevent their bag of valuables being snatched out of their hands. Such an arrangement
