CHAPTER VIII

" D.B. Double breasted."
" I think it's very nice, though I don't know how you can afford it. Here's a little present I'd better give you while I can." Denis's fingers fastened on a thin envelope. They walked on without glancing down. Denis thrust the envelope in his trouser pocket. " I say, mum, it's awfully decent of you, and I know you can't afford it. I wish you'd spend something on yourself instead. You're always giving me things." He pressed her arm, and looked away at the stream of parents. They had left the shade of the cloisters for the dazzling heat of school yard. The statue of the Founder smiled gently. The red bricks of Lupton's Tower quivered in the sun. It was a glorious Fourth.
" You haven't noticed my new hat," said Mrs. Bailey. " I bought it in Barford for the occasion. I hope you approve." Denis felt a pig. But he had noticed a general niceness about his mother's dress on the station platform. " You look jolly well in it," he said. " I say, mother, Joan looks ripping, doesn't she ? She's quite different somehow."
" She's nearly eighteen, you know."
" Can I ask some chaps to stay in the holidays, mum ?"
" Of course ; is Robin coming ?"
" Joan wants him. I was thinking of asking Ockley or Harbord if you don't mind."
" We'll do our little best for them. I used to know Lord Ockley's mother, when I was a girl. She was penniless, poor thing, before she married Lord Periton." They caught up Mr. Bailey and Joan, who were waiting by the house. " Now mind you tell your father everything you've been doing this half," said his mother. " You know he likes to hear it all from the beginning."
" All right, I'll try, mum. I've got lots to tell you all. Come on, Joanand father. In here. You can leaveyourthings in the hall. Here's m'tutor."
" Ah, Mrs. Bailey, and Mr. Bailey, very glad to see you. And this is Joan. Last time I saw you, you were in pigtails." Joan smiled and made a face at Denis. Wren led the way down the long table of the private dining-room. Opposite
