EURYDICE TWICE LOST

found novels for which he was fitted by nature. Daphne Adeane rewarded my expectations, and I introduced this book to the French public by a preface.
I was received in other homes in London. Lady Oxford and Mrs. Greville introduced me to men of politics; Lady Colefax to men of letters. It was at her home that I first met Rudyard Kipling whom I had admired so much. I was not disappointed. Kipling talked like Kipling. Kipling was a Kipling character. He was the first to put me on my guard against the optimistic pacifism which was then disarming England:
`Don't forget,' he said, `that countries always end by resembling their shadows.'
This sentence seemed to me sibylline at the time; history proved it to be prophetic. Later in 1928 he invited me to come and see him at Burwash where he had an old house which had belonged to an Elizabethan ironmaster, and a wonderful garden. It was the country described in Puck of Pook's Hill. But this book had been written for his son who had disappeared in that same battle of Loos which had been my baptism of fire. His death had stabbed Kipling even to the quick of his creative power and he was doing almost no writing. I found him discontented with his own country, uneasy about mine, excessively clairvoyant and prophesying misfortunes. But to see and to touch a man whom I had so long considered superhuman intoxicated me.
Another of my English retreats was Avebury Manor, an ancient Elizabethan house, which belonged to Colonel Jenner, one of my Abbeville friends, and was'surrounded by prehistoric tombs, fields of dolmens and thousand-year-old yew trees. Inside it was furnished with canopied beds, huge fireplaces with open wood fires, tables set with bluish Waterford glass, and with rare and ancient collections of books. It was through my numerous visits to this Wiltshire home that I came to know the country families of England, traditional, conservative and yet liberal. There I saw the life and way of thought of the country gentlemen who, together with the merchants of London, had so long constituted the backbone of the country and who still played such an important role in the Army, the Navy and at the Foreign Office. They had their faults, stubbornness and narrowness, and their virtues, courage and tenacity.
All things considered, I found them useful to their country and always ready to serve it. It was Colonel Jenner who first guided my readings in
