CHAPTER IV

late for absence. As Denis dashed under the archway into school yard and plunged into the sea of blazers and coloured caps, the master, by the wall, called his name. A slight pause, and then again " Bailey ? " Denis raised his cap and panted, " Here, sir," from the fringes of the crowd. Only just in time. Occasionally the unanswered names were read again when absence was over, and those, who arrived in time, escaped with a warning. Shirking absence altogether was as serious an offence as shirking Sunday chapel. Any number of Latin lines might result. London is barely half an hour by train from Eton, and less than an hour by car. So in the summer, absences were called at two-thirty and five or six, and they served their purpose.
Denis walked back to tea with Spencer-Mace, who came a little above him in the list. " I've got the most lovely new Mozart records at Dyson's," said Spencer-Mace. "I've been trying them with Holmes-Norton all the afternoon."
" We've been on the river," said Denis. " Harbord caught the most priceless crab."
" You paint a bit, don't you, Bailey? Come into my room before tea ; I've got some rather sweet Japanese prints, on approval."
" I'm afraid I don't know anything about prints," said Denis.
" Oh, that doesn't matter ; you'll love these. They're all soft, with heavenly pinks and blues. I say, I'm so glad you're messing with us this half."
" So am I. It was very decent of you to ask me."
" Because Harbord's really rather a philistine, don't you think, though, of course, I like him."
" I don't know," said Denis.
" Peter's a dear, and so is his mother, Lady Periton. You don't know her ? Oh, she's quite charming. I think Peter's so attractive. M'dame doesn't agree. In fact, she was extraordinarily rude to me, when I asked her if she didn't think so. But she's got no taste, the poor old hag."
" Ockley's decent," agreed Denis. Spencer-Mace looked at him.
