I've got to get out there and see what's going on!
Ogilvy found The Thing, which turned out to not be a meteorite at all. Even more shocking, there were creatures inside roasting to death!
Ogilvy went running through town like a crazy man and got his neighbor Henderson. Together, they tried to get others to to help the dying creatures inside The Thing.
I heard about the "dead men from Mars" at about 9 o'clock and immediately ran to see what all the ruckus was about.
Lord Hilton should be arriving any minute now.
Once I had arrived at the pit, a crowd of people was surrounding the crater. It was quite a sight!
Soon, everyone had heard about the Martians. It even made headlines in the London newspapers.
Message from Mars
The crowd was growing quickly and impeding Ogilvy's excavations; so, he asked me to find Lord Hilton to see if we could put up a railing. I waited for Lord Hilton's train to arrive so that I could fill him in.
