THE COLONEL'S LADY

ALL this happened two or three years before the outbreak of the war.
The Peregrines were having breakfast. Though they were alone and the table was long they sat at opposite ends of it. From the walls George Peregrine's ancestors, painted by the fashionable painters of the day, looked down upon them. The butler brought in the morning post. There were several letters for the colonel, business letters, The Times and a small parcell for his wife Evie. He looked at his letters and then, opening The Times, began to read it. They finished breakfast and rose from the table. He noticed that his wife hadn't opened the parcel.
" What's that?" he asked.
" Only some books."
" Shall I open it for you?"
" If you like."
He hated to cut string and so with some difficulty untied the knots.
" But they're all the same," he said when he had unwrapped the parcel. "What on earth d'you want six copies of the same book for?" He opened one of them. "Poetry." Then lie looked at the title page. Though Pyramids Decay, he read, by E. K. Hamilton. Eva Katherine Hamilton: that was his wife's maiden name. He looked at her with smiling surprise. "Have you written a book, Evie? You are a slyboots."
" I didn't think it would interest you very much. Would you like a copy?"
" Well, you know poetry isn't much in my line, but-yes, I'd like a copy; I'll read it. I'll take it along to my study. I've got a lot to do this morning."
