In the short story In a Glass Darkly, Major Oldam and his wife are friends of the Carslake family and staying with them at Badgeworthy at the same time as the unnamed narrator of the story. They occupied the bedroom opposite his. The narrator saw in his room mirror a reflection of a larger bedroom with two bedsteads. At the foot of the bed was a man strangling a fair-haired woman. He thought the persons might be the Oldams but after checking with his host Neil Carslake, concluded that was unlikely.
