First I looked around to see who was on the beach. It was deserted, only two or three dark figures were seen far away going towards the village of Fulworth. I walked slowly down the path. There was clay mixed with the chalk, and everywhere I saw the same footsteps. No one else had descended to the beach by the path that morning. At one place I saw the print of an open hand with the fingers. This could only mean that poor McPherson had fallen as he ascended. We found the place where McPherson had undressed, as there was his towel on a rock. It was dry, he had never entered the water. I found the print of his shoe, and also of his naked foot. This fact proved that he was ready to bathe, but he had not actually done it.
