CHAPTER VIII

" Do you really like it ?"
" Yes, I think it's all right."
" Let's see what you've chosen." Mr. Philbert brought forward some fawn pink material. " Mr. Bailey is having a double-breasted waistcoat this year."
" Good Lord, you're not going to wear that, are you?" said Robin.
" Why not? "
" Only it's a bit out of your line, isn't it, Denis ?"
" I rather wanted to have a double-breasted waistcoat for a change."
" Oh well, so long as Joan likes it. Yes, I'll have that grey, Mr. Philbert. You won't want my measurements again? "
" Joan's coming down on the Fourth," said Denis. " She said particularly she was looking forward to seeing you."
" I'm having lunch at the White Hart with Tony's people, but I'll look out for her on Upper Club. See you later." He went out into the street.
" Doesn't our Manley approve of double-breasted waistcoats," said Ockley.
" Damned smart," said Harbord. " I've just been measured for a pair of sponge bag trousers."
" I suppose he's jealous because you've gone one better than him," said Ockley. " Let's go to Tap and I'll sock you a bridge roll before lunch." A bridge roll was a formidable piece of bakery, split into two and anointed sparingly with some paste. It rarely failed to blunt the sharpest appetite before boys' dinner.
Denis did not sleep much the night before the Fourth. Each time he woke the school clock was striking a later hour. At four he gave up trying not to think of the day that was dawning. He closed his eyes and formed thoughtful pictures of the events before him. On the ottoman lay the smartly pressed suit and the fawn d.b. waistcoat. His umbrella, specially rolled for the occasion, hung from the top of the burry. He could see it clearly now in the paling shadow. After breakfast he would go down town and buy a carnation
