CHAPTER III

Eton. Robin and he had been inseparable. Robin was better at games, and his friendship with Taunton had begun on the football field. But in work they were equal. They had entered into a partnership, whereby Robin and he alternately tackled difficult passages of construe and pooled the results. Once Wren had detected a striking likeness in their Latin verse copies, and tearing them into two halves, had exclaimed with a snort " Now, let's have two separate versions." The whole room had tittered ; Denis saw it now. But that was all over. No more walks with Robin by the crumbling banks of the Thames on still June evenings. No more strolls down town with Robin, shop window gazing, flinging insolent jests at passing traffic ; no more plots for the future, hatched so very seriously in their rooms at Wren's. The organ had ceased. Six hundred black forms straightened themselves clumsily, and a minute later sank limply on the hassocks. Denis prayed. He prayed for company. Religion with Denis, as with other boys, was the religion of the oppressed. God was an ally, a confidant in bad moments. Less often, God appeared in his mind, when he was thinking of nothing in particular. But religion did not constantly inspire him. God was a good friend in time of trouble. Perhaps Denis rather gloried in a little despair and oppression ; he almost fancied himself as a Christian martyr, and it was then that he enjoyed his prayers tremendously. God was certainly his friend, now Robin had ceased to be. As he came to make more friends he forgot about God.
" I'm sorry if I was bloody to you just now," said Robin, as they were leaving chapel.
" Not a bit, silly ass. I was only ragging about Taunton. I say, what about taking a whiff on the river this afternoon. There's nothing much to do." A whiff was a narrow rowing boat, which drybobs, who had passed the swimming test, were allowed to take out.
" No, I can't to-day. We're going up to Queen's Eyot ; but another time, I'd love to."
They got their books and wandered off to school. They were up to Hunter for classics. Not much work would be
