THE MAY RACES

favoured than the rest of the vast crowd. It was here that Veronica waited. Much to Baron Erfurt's relief, his charge had managed to recover his savoir faire, and to-day seemed more like his old cheery self. The Countess of Walkington had brought Veronica, and was at present down by the river side talking to an old friend. She had received very strict orders from her brother not to leave Carl and Veronica alone together for long, in case of complications. Lord d'Harlecourt had no intention of allowing anything in the nature"of romance to interfere with his daughter's happiness, ust yet. He was very well aware of the intended `alliance' between Carl and the Princess Yolanda, and he knew that any silly love affair would only make things very much more difficult.
Aunt Maud, however, had her own ideas. In her opinion, a d'Harlecourt was quite good enough for a `twopence-halfpenny kingdom' like Bulkrania-as she called it. Indeed, she was not fearful for the future King at all, but for her own niece Veronica-she was certain she could make a much better match than that ! Besides, it was right that young people should be together-and it was so nice to sit there down by the river, surrounded, once again, by all one's old admirers!
Thus, Veronica was left alone with this quiet young man she had grown to look at with something more than mere interest. She found him very much quieter than on the last occasion of their meeting. That night at the ball in London they had come to something very near an understanding; though she felt afterwards that perhaps most of this was due to the thrill of the evening. Her companion seemed to-day to be conscious of this too ; his manner was obviously restrained and standoffish. It made her feel uncomfortable.
