The Children Of The Earth
Start of Teaberry-Grant Investigation
Phillip Teaberry’s niece, Mildred Grant, recently moved from New York, where she lived with her parents, Joan (Phillip’s sister) and Matthew Grant, to a town in Rhode Island. She sent Phillip a telegraph a few days ago to let him know that she hasn’t heard from her parents in 2 weeks, and when Phillip tried to contact them, he had no luck either. Phillip has been in frequent contact with her since then: she hasn’t had a telephone installed in her apartment yet, but has replied to his telegrams (via telegraph delivery boy) fairly quickly. Phillip feels he’s not equipped to find out what’s happened to his family, and has come to you for help.
