CHAPTER V

The gong had not yet sounded, so he read through his letter to Maureen, underlined the words " if not better," and stuck it up. For a moment he thought of adding the news about Robin to his mother's letter ; but he decided against it. He opened the door and went out into the passage. Some lower boys were leaning against the wall. They hurried away. " I say, Shalfont," Denis called after them. " Take these letters down and put them in the box, will You?"
" All right, Bailey." The boy grinned and ran off down the stairs.
Evening chapel was over by six, though boys in Lower Chapel got out rather earlier. Denis found groups of lower boys huddled round the gas rings and standing about by the notice board. They straightened themselves and stared at old notices or busied themselves with their fagmasters' tea, as he passed. A few uppers joined them.
Ockley came into his room. He threw his hat in the corner. " Shapeleigh has left," he said, and sat down to his tea.
" Shapeleigh ? Why ? " said Denis.
" You'll know soon enough. No, don't put it on my plate, idiot. Stick it over there." The fag put down the teapot and withdrew. Harbord rushed into the room. " You've heard, I suppose ? "
" Yes ; he's left," said Ockley. Spencer-Mace came in. " Who sneaked? " he said.
" Nobody, fool," said Harbord. "Dirty little brute wrote home to his people."
" I wonder what he said. I'd give -anything to know," said Spencer-Mace.
" This is what he said, if you really want to know. 'Dear Poppa, I thought this house was to be a house of prayer, but actually it's a den of thieves ; and how. Your virtuous son, Charles.' And pass the cake, thanks very much."
" Is his name Charles ? " said Denis, still mystified.
" Bailey, you make me tired ; but are you sure he has left, Peter ? " said Harbord.
