CHAPTER VII

Flox was Maureen's fox terrier and Joan was Denis's sister. She was nearly eighteen and had been to a mixed school in Geneva for the last twelve months.
Denis stuffed the envelope in his trouser pocket and started on a haddock. Maureen didn't say much, and what damned rot about not being able to come to tea. She would come if she wanted to ; and she didn't say .anything about wanting to meet his new friends. Perhaps she was shy of Ockley. He was a fool to have added the postscript about the Earl of Periton. He hoped she didn't think him a snob. But she would have felt a pretty good fool, if she hadn't known till afterwards she was having tea with the son of an earl, and she would have been furious with him for not telling her. Anyhow, girls could never enter into the spirit of things like other chaps, though he had always thought of Maureen as a bit different from other girls. It only showed. He finished his haddock and Ockley said:
" Well, how's your lady friend ?" Denis blushed. " Sorry, but I couldn't help seeing the envelope. It's just how my sister used to write before she came out."
" She says she won't be allowed to come to tea," said Denis.
" Good Lord, what's she afraid of ? Of course, SpencerMace will ask about corsets, but nobody listens to him. And Oliver will probably fall in love with her and send her his photograph. Otherwise, I can't see anything to be alarmed at."
" I'm going to write and tell her not to be a bloody fool," said Denis. " I'll ask her for Saturday week. There's cricket, but I don't suppose I shall have a game. Will that Suit you ?
" Fine."
" I think you'll like her," if only she doesn't wear the blue tam-o'-shanter, thought Denis.
A few days later he found a pale violet envelope on the dining-room slab. Maureen had accepted. There were certain conditions and restrictions, but she was coming, and seemed glad to be coming. Denis spent several chapels and
