Wells to Landlady: “An hour ago a thief smashed a window in the next-door building stairwell, climbed onto the outdoor balcony and may have tried to break into the apartment. He left a half-consumed beer bottle that probably has fingerprints. You’d better report this to the police, and definitely call the owner of the building next door and make sure the smashed window is promptly repaired. As long as it’s shattered security is nonexistent.”
