"Yes. But it would have had to have been in a bit of paper or a small bottle. However, if it was in paste form, a piece one-quarter the size of a pea would have done the work, and it could have been carried in a corner of a handkerchief. A speck of the stuff would cause death in some cases."
"Possibly, then, she committed suicide."

"You never can tell."
"That's true, of course," replied the doctor.
