In case it's unclear, Marlowe is just remembering what Loup said to her at the Ball. She only says "Crow's Tomb!" out loud.

Also, I tried to pick a readable font that still looked like handwriting, but for any who are still struggling, here's the full text of Neville's letter:
"My dear friend Bernard,
I write to you to tell you that I may be gone some days, that you might not worry about me. I have a project which, once you are made familiar with it, you will understand why I have had to conceal it from even you. Indeed, I am even to blame for your missing invitation. This task required that I attend Melford’s Ball secretly. I hope you can forgive me this deception.

I must also ask that you be prepared for a strange request. I hope to be back in town within a few days, and by then I will know whether it will be necessary. Do not trouble yourself that I would ask for more money. I may as well tell you this much- I am very confident that I shall discover the very tomb of King Crow! Bernard, I mean not only to repay you, but to credit you for all the help you’ve been. I will see you soon and then I will explain all.

Your grateful friend,
Neville Heron"

AND FINALLY to whom it may concern, I've archived a bunch of the Q&As and other extra pages. You can still see them all here.

Eh, what it means is simple enough, he didn't plan quite well enough, or just didn't keep his mouth shut enough, and someone prevented him from following through on his plans. permanently.

Hmmm interesting, ok. I need to go back and read that convo between loup and nova..

Also that writing is very legible since I was able to read it from my phone! :)

Ooh, yeah! Loup was actually EAVESDROPPING (rude) on a conversation between Elgin and Nova. It was unclear earlier how much he heard, but apparently uh... everything.

Good! Ugh, I was worried about that. :P

Well, given his ears/sensitivity of his hearing, it's not like there's much he has a choice of not overhearing in a certain area.

... Brings up that question of "Are there dog whistles or some equivalent here?"

Oh no! Now she's gonna think that Loup/Nova/Elgin killed him! D: Noooo wrong conclusion!!! D:

Ooh! I actually did think about going that route, but Marlowe trusts Loup's story and wouldn't think either of the guys capable of murder. She'll probably rule Nova out pretty quickly too, since Bernard saw Neville alive after the kidnapping.

It would have been great for dramatic effect though, for her to be worried that her boys are stuck with a murderer. D:

He's got some pretty elegant hand writing. :)

Hehe, I think it's pretty common for these fancy gentlemen folks. :D

In panel 2 I either just wouldn't have had a connection between the last bubble and the rest or have Marlow's bubble be superimposed over one of Loup's.
