Unfortunately there were couple of mistakes in the game. At one location it says go left and follow the black railings but it is actually a turn right (leading to Chapter 7). Chapter 9 and 10 does not say where to stop. (Chapter 9 stop by Trafalgar Quatrers) and to answer for the question put an additional "a" before the world. Chapter 10 stop by the painting on the wall.
