" I think you should have asked your mother before accepting," said Mr. Bailey.

The tea party ended on a lighter note and Mr. Bailey had to leave unsaid many of the things he had meant to say. It aggravated him to have no mental picture of his son's life at Eton.

The ladies powdered their noses in the narrow mirror by the washstand. They put on their hats and followed Denis down the stairs and out across the street into school yard, where absence was about to be called.
The headmaster stood on the steps of chapel. He wore a robe of scarlet, and a mortar-board on his head. The captain of the school in rowing dress waited by his side. Behind
