    Why would Joss Merlyn allow Mary Yellan to come and stay at Jamaica Inn?

    Would he not be afraid that she might inform on him?

    1/ Jamaica Inn is in the middle of no place - there's no phones, so who exactly is she going to inform?

    2/ She's family - family does not inform on family -

    3/ If Mary & Joss Merlyn's wife could keep the inn running whilst he's away it would be less suspicions.

    4/ Not taking her in might create more suspicion

    She could inform a Horseman Riding By.
    Voices mysterious far and near,
    Sound of the wind and sound of the sea,
    Are calling and whispering in my ear,
    Whifflingpin! Why stayest thou here?
