Imagine a murder staged under the Cioch, that fine bossed rock, and the whole spirit of the locus would be changed. Before it happened, just before it happened, an expedition to Arran was, in 1889, the year after Jack the Ripper, a real adventure for a clerkly person from Tooting. Edwin Robert Rose was normally resident in the very stronghold of Pooterdom, deep in the suburbs of south-west London, with their wooded commons and grids of speculative villas. Here, at Wisset Lodge, Hendham Road, Upper Tooting, with its inspiring view of the red Tudor-style battlements of Springfield, the Surrey County Lunatic Asylum, at the top of the street, Rose lived in comfort and harmony with his father, four sisters and one brother.
This year, he was actually on the Ivanhoe when Rose made the fatal connection with Laurie. He saw them together. And when, back at Rothesay, he met Laurie again, he could not help noticing that he was wearing a cap very similar to his new friend’s. It was on the tip of his tongue to say so. When they were both home in Glasgow, they met by chance in Hope Street, and Laurie tried to bluff it out. By that time (July 31st) the disappearance of Edwin Rose was in all the newspapers. ’ Aitken asked, blunt and suspicious.
We do know that on the Monday, at lunch at 2pm, he complained that he could not eat for toothache. Earlier that morning, he had gone off to get quinine powder as a remedy, but evidently it had not worked. 30pm, he and Rose set off at a fair pace to climb their mountain. Laurie was the leader, silent with his pain, and, possibly, wicked thoughts. Rose must himself have been uncomfortable in his tweed outfit over brown merino drawers and socks, white linen shirt and white knitted semmit (vest). At first, after passing through the Castle woods, the foothills to Goatfell were green and mossy moor, the air sultry and buzzing with insects.
