CHAPTER VII

There was a double knock on the door. " Come in," called Ockley, and the dame's genial face looked in.
" Oh, I'm sorry, Ockley. I didn't know you were having a tea party," though Denis had told her of Maureen's visit. She stood, waiting to be introduced and radiating a homely charm, that would have induced any parent to put her son down for Wren's.
" And what do you think of tea in a boy's room, Miss Roxburgh ? I don't suppose you've eaten a meal like this before."
" No, indeed I haven't," said Maureen. " I shall never be able to eat anything more, I feel." Miss Fuller laughed a contented laugh. " And how do you think our Denis looks ? Not exactly starved, does he ?" She poked Denis playfully in the ribs.
" jolly well, I think. Do they all have such good teas ?"
" Well, Lord Ockley is very lucky, aren't you, Peter ? As his charming mother sends him things from home, and so is our little Spencer-Mace here." Spencer-Mace glared at her. " So you live near Denis, do you ? It's a lovely part of the country, though I've never been there myself. You must come and pay us another visit, Miss Roxburgh, now you know the way. Get Mrs. Bailey to bring you. We're old friends, Denis's mother and me, aren't we, Denis ? "
" Yes, ma'am," said Denis.
" That's right," said Miss Fuller. She stood a moment in the doorway and withdrew with a nod of approval to all but Harbord, to whom she gave an admonitory frown. She had caught him hiding a Cascara behind his tongue last night, and had not yet forgiven him.
Denis opened the door to see if she had really gone. He shut it behind him. " Bloody old hag."
" She's only showing off," said Ockley.
" She's not such an ogre as you made out, Denis. I think she's rather a sweet old thing."
" You wouldn't really, if you knew her better, Miss Roxburgh," said Harbord. " She made me swallow a double
