Unable to proceed further, the passengers make their way to a lonely hotel where they seek refuge .for the night, . *\ One of the coach party explains that he has made the journey especially to search for a missing Will, for which £1,000 reward has been offered, and which he believes to be secreted somewhere beneath the very roof now sheltering them.
