Captain Hartland was an agent for the Consistorial Court of Discipline who came to the Linnaeus Room in the Botanic Garden to speak to Lucy Arnold about Anthony Hassall, the man who had been murdered. Hartland spoke mainly to Lucy but also asked Malcolm Polstead and Charles Capes about what they were doing there and about the bag Anthony was carrying.
He came with two other men however was the only one to speak. He wore a dark overcoat and a trilby hat. When he entered, the porter, John, told him the meeting was being staged in the Humboldt Room to allow him time to warn Lucy about the men.
