A CASUAL AFFAIR

it put my back up. I didn't much fancy being treated as if I were a chauffeur applying for a situation.
" 'Please don't mention it,' I said, rather stiffly. `It's all in the day's work.'
" 'Have you got the things with you?' she asked.
" I didn't answer, but I opened the dispatch-case I'd brought with me and took out the letters. I handed them to her. She accepted them without a word. She gave them a glance. She was very much made up, but I swear she went white underneath. The expression of her face didn't change. I looked at her hands. They were trembling a little. Then she seemed to pull herself together.
" `Oh, I'm so sorry,' she said. `Won't you sit down?'
" I took a chair. For a moment she didn't seem to know quite what to do. She held the letters in her hand. I, knowing what they were, wondered what she felt. She didn't give much away. There was a desk beside the chimney piece and she opened a drawer and put them in. Then she sat down opposite me and asked me to have a cigarette. I handed her the cigarettecase. I'd had it in my breast pocket.
" `I was asked to give you this too,' I said.
" She took it and looked at it. For a moment she didn't speak and I waited. I didn't quite know if I ought to get up and go.
" 'Did you know Jack well?' she asked suddenly.
" 'I didn't know him at all,' I answered. `I never saw him until after his death.'
" `I had no idea he was dead till I got your note,' she said. `I'd lost sight of him for a long time. Of course he was a very old friend of mine.'
" I wondered if she thought I hadn't read the letters or if she'd forgotten what sort of letters they were. If the sight of them had given her a shock she had quite got over it by then. She spoke almost casually.
" `What did he die of in point of fact?' she asked.
" 'Tuberculosis, opium and starvation,' I answered.
