The red curtain is stolen to use as a prop in a staged murder. 

Armstrong was keen on the idea. We carried it out that evening. A little plaster of red mud on the
forehead - the red curtain and the wool and the stage was set. The lights of the candles were very
flickering and uncertain and the only person who would examine me closely was Armstrong. It worked perfectly. Miss Claythorne screamed the house down when she found the seaweed which I had
thoughtfully arranged in her room. They all rushed up, and I took up my pose of a murdered man.
