As for the business part of the transaction, it had been carried out in a perfectly legitimate fashion ; and was quite satisfactory to both parties. Nor were the agents seeking to invite any trouble by asking too many questions !
The new owner (who, by the way, called himself Bernaldi) set about straightening things up, in a very determined manner, as soon as the transaction was completed. A regular army of gardeners invaded the gardens and grounds ; special skilled men came from London and laid two hard tennis courts ; furniture appeared in great pantechnicons ; and a large staff of servants arrived. There was every indication to the world at large that Mr. Bernaldi was a man of great wealth and position, who evidently thought a great deal about his own personal comfort. He had very good 'taste,' too, as the 'County' discovered when they called to make the acquaintance of their new neighbour. Then, he seemed to know just the right people ; and it soon got noised abroad that he himself was not very far removed from being a`royal personage'. Still, it was all mere rumour ; and he never bothered either to deny or confirm any of it. Himself, he was a perfect host ; and his invitation to Bunny and Ajax was no empty one. Indeed, in the few months since he had taken possession there, a complete change had transformed the grim old Priory-though strangely enough, he never cut down the creeper which bled like a man !
