Notes Last appearance. Per Anthony Durrant (April 4, 2006): " In frames five, six, and seven of page seven, there are several errors: the Deacon's suit is green in frame five, and in frames six and seven, Mrs. Langdon Hughes's lines are in a voice balloon above the head of Wilma Childs/Miss Brighton, Mrs. Langdon Hughes's nurse. Apparently, the writer was going to have Wilma Childs elucidate the mystery, or at least say something, but at the last minute her dialogue was replaced with that of Mrs. Langdon Hughes, to show that Mrs. Hughes had recovered."
