"'That's what Monsieur Parnelle said.''And who's he, when he's at home?' I asked flippantly.The plump nun frowned in bewilderment. 'Well, at his own establishment, I believe he is a maker of trusses, and a jeweler. When he comes here, though, he acts usually as a urinoscopist.'I felt my own brows rising. 'A urinoscopist?'
