"Who is it?"
"It's me, sir. I've brought you your evening tea."
Dr Jekyll stopped writing and opened the door forPoole. "Put it down over there and take those otherthings away. But I don't want to be disturbed againtonight, Poole."
Poole put the tea tray on one of Dr Jekyll's tables.
Dr Jekyll was thinking deeply about something, andhe wasn't looking at Poole. When he looked up,Poole was about to put a half-empty glass, which hethought Dr Jekyll had finished with, onto an emptytray.
