36 solvesSolve puzzle
A bagnio was a coffee-house where baths may be taken and private rooms rented. Earl Squanderfield has followed his wife and Mr Silvertongue from the masquerade ball and has caught them in flagrante. In the ensuing fight the Earl has been mortally injured and, as the Countess begs her husband's foregiveness, Silvertongue is making his escape through the window. The commotion has disturbed the housekeeper who appears at the door.
