THE COLONEL'S LADY

"It's so rotten not to know what sort of a chap he was. One can't even tell if he was by way of being a gentleman. I mean, for all I know he may have been a farm-hand or a clerk in a lawyer's office."
Harry Blanc did not permit himself to smile and when he answered there was in his eyes a kindly, tolerant look.
" Knowing Evie so well I think the probabilities are that he was all right.. Anyhow I'm sure he wasn't a clerk in my office."
" It's been such a shock to me," the colonel sighed. "I thought she was fond of me. She couldn't have written that book unless she hated me."
" Oh, I don't believe that. I don't think she's capable o.f hatred."
" You're not going to pretend that she loves me."
" No"
" Well, what does she feel for me?"
Harry Blanc leaned back in his swivel chair and looked at George reflectively.
" Indifference, I should say."
The colonel gave a little shudder and reddened.
" After all, you're not in love with her, are you?"
George Peregrine did not answer directly.
" It's been a great blow to me not to have any children, but I've never let her see that I think she's let me down. I've always been kind to her. Within reasonable limits I've tried to do my duty by her."
The lawyer passed a large hand over his mouth to conceal the smile that trembled on his lips.
" It's been such an awful shock to me," Peregrine went on. "Damn it all, even ten years ago Evie was no chicken and God knows, she wasn't much to look at. It's so ugly." He sighed deeply. "What would you do in my place?"
" Nothing."
George Peregrine drew himself bolt upright in his chair and he looked at Harry with the stern set face that he must havrc worn when he inspected his regiment.
