CHAPTER VIII

" Yes, I know," said Mrs. Bailey. " Miss Fuller always says such delightful things about Denis."
" Of course, it must be difficult for her to give every boy the same amount of attention, don't you agree ?"
" Yes, I'm afraid my Denis gets more than his share, don't you, Denis ?" Both ladies looked at him.
" She's not a bad old hag, I mean dame," he muttered.
" But, of course, a shower of rain would upset the whole game," said Mr. Bailey.
" No, we don't want rain, you're right," agreed Lord Periton rather wearily.
In the afternoon they went back to Upper Club. It was hotter now than in the morning and many of the spectators had moved their chairs back under the chestnut trees, where they could see and be seen, if necessary, by the passers-by.
The crowd moved ceaselessly, but it was possible to walk for the whole of the Fourth without meeting a particular friend. Everybody walked in the same direction and the same faces reappeared every ten minutes. There was a bent little man in a grey topper and an Old Etonian tie, and a. hatchet-faced woman in big, blue spotted chiffon, and as the afternoon wore on, Denis developed a strong grievance against both of them. There was no escaping them. His. father and mother were always finding old friends and stopping to express the same surprise, that they had not met since goodness knows when. As soon as they stopped, the grey topper and the blue spots swept by, as if wound up with an inexhaustible spring. Then the Bailey family walked on again, and in a minute the bent old man and the hatchetfaced woman hurried towards them out of the crowd.
It was funny about these old friends of the family, thought Denis. His people kept meeting them and saying such warm and affectionate things ; yet, though they had not met since goodness knows when, they made no attempt to see each other again. Only sometimes, Mrs. Bailey said, " Do suggest yourself if you are ever in our part of the world." And the old friend said, " Thanks, I will," and hurried off.
· I bet he doesn't," said Denis to Joan.
