THE COLONEL'S LADY

consult someone else. And look here, even if you got evidence that Evie had been unfaithful to you what would you do with it? You'd look rather silly divorcing your wife because she'd committed adultery ten years ago."
" At all events I could have it out with her."
" You can do that now, but you know just as well as I do, that if you do she'll leave you. D'you want her to do that?"
George gave him an unhappy look.
" I don't know. I always thought she'd been a damned good wife to me. She runs the house perfectly, we never have any servant trouble; she's done wonders with the garden and she's splendid with all the village people. But damn it, I have my self-respect to think of. How can I go on living with her when I know that she was grossly unfaithful to me?"
" Have you always been faithful to her?"
" More or less, you know. After all we've been married for nearly twenty-four years and Evie was never much for bed."
The solicitor slightly raised his eyebrows, but George was too intent on what he was saying to notice.
" I don't deny that I've had a bit of fun now and then. A man wants it. Women are different."
" We only have men's word for that," said Harry Blanc, with a faint smile.
" Evie's absolutely the last woman I'd have suspected of kicking over the traces. I mean, she's a very fastidious, reticent woman. What on earth made her write the damned book?"
" I suppose it was a very poignant experience and perhaps it was a relief to her to get it off her chest like that."
" Well, if she had to write it why the devil didn't she write it under an assumed name?"
" She used her maiden name. I suppose she thought that was enough, and it would have been if the book hadn't had this amazing boom."
George Peregrine and the lawyer were sitting opposite one another' with a desk between them. George, his elbow on the desk, his cheek resting on his hand, frowned at his thought.
