Answer :

The lady managed to deceive Horace Danby into thinking that she was the lady of the

house with her subtle ways. She was dressed up pretty well, just like the lady of the

house would be dressed. Also, her manner of talking calmly, the way in which she

petted the dog, and her going to the fireplace to straighten the ornaments there showed her familiarity with the place. She regulated her tone and voice according to the

situation. Sometimes, she talked in a kind voice. At other times, she spoke in a serious

manner. She would laugh occasionally, and then, suddenly, her voice would become

sharp. She spoke about how society should be protected from men like Horace.

Because of all these things, Horace could not suspect that she was not the lady of the

house. He was nervous himself, and was scared of getting caught. The moment he saw

that she would let him go, he quickly broke open the safe for her, and promised not to

rob again. According to the narrator, he was a 'good, honest citizen'. This was why

Horace could not suspect anything.
