Here is more evidence supporting "stable". According to the HathiTrust
search engine the 1942 edition "The Uninvited" from The Literary Guild
of America contains a match for the phrase using "stable" instead of
"liable". I have not checked this edition on paper.

The SFFAudio blog referenced episodes that had been recorded for the
Forgotten Classics website; unfortunately, that website now states
that the episodes for "The Uninvited" have been removed.

It turns out that The Uninvited was still under copyright so episodes
98-110 have been taken down. My apologies but please do go seek out
the book.
