In "The Worst Crime in the World" by G. K. Chesterton, a lawyer was talking to Father Brown:
“I must apologize for everything I said about the Captain,” he said to the priest as they drifted together towards the door. “He’s a thoroughly sensible fellow and quite sees my point. He asked me himself why I didn’t go north and see his old father; I could hear from the old man’s own lips how it stood about the inheritance. Well, he couldn’t say fairer than that, could he? But he’s so anxious to get the thing settled that he offered to take me up in his own car to Musgrave Moss. That’s the name of the estate. I suggested that, if he was so kind, we might go together; and we’re starting to-morrow morning.”
Does this "we" mean Brown and the lawyer? as the lawyer already said that "the captain offered to take me up in his own car to Musgrave Moss", so how can he suggest again on the captain to go together with him?
But in a later paragraph, this captain said:
“Look here,” he cried, speaking naturally enough, though they fancied his colour was changed. “I’m awfully sorry, Mr. Granby, but I find I can’t come north with you to-morrow. Of course, you will take the car all the same. Please do; I shan’t want it. I — I have to be in London for some days. Take a friend with you if you like.”
He suggested "Take a friend with you if you like", as if "we" in the first passage didn't mean the "the lawyer and his friend Brown" already!!
So does the offer of "he offered to take me up in his own car to Musgrave Moss" mean "he offered me to go alone by his car with his chauffeur?
