Thank you. Father? Not any more now, I used to be. Once a priest, always a priest. Are you a catholic? Theoretically. Except I haven’t been in a church for more than thirty years. Even though I’m amazed that a man of your persuasion should be mixed up in a thing like this. Sometimes the church takes the side of the people. Oh is that so? Well bully for you, father. Don’t call me father, my name’s Leon. Would you like a tot Leon? Drinking it too quickly, senor Fortnum, . there’s a bill in the bag there. I suppose as a man of God, . .you’ll tell someone else to pull the trigger. God forbid it should come to that, but if it does, I’ll be the one. Well that’s that then Leon. What do you mean? They won’t trade anything for me. In fact they’ll be quite delighted to get me off their hands at last. Your parents still alive? Yes. What does your father do? Cuts cane in the season. And out of season? Nothing. They live on the money I send them. Do you have any brothers or sisters? My sister died. She had a baby in the fields. She strangled it and then she died. My brother went away. Where? I don’t know. What’s the matter? You don’t want Charley back, but I don’t want him to be killed either. Wait. Go on. Stop! You flew down specially? Yes, going back this evening. Well, I’m afraid the situation looks pretty bleak. The foreign minister takes the view that it’s a Paraguayan affair, the Paraguayans refuse to discuss the matter on the grounds that the President’s on holiday . .and Whitehall’s position is that er, they won’t be held to ransom by criminals. But surely the Americans could help. No, they’re most unsympathetic I’m afraid. Of course, if the Ambassador hadn’t taken against Fortnum . .so violently and insisted on driving himself, they’d have kidnapped him, but he appears to be . .impervious to that line of reasoning. Is there nothing you can do Sir Henry? Alas, it’s all extremely ticklish, apart from anything else, relations between us and the Argentinians are very shaky . .it’s not even as if the poor devil were any good at his job.
