CHAPTER X

The special long leave train to Paddington had been made up on a basis of roughly ten boys to a compartment.

" Yes, I told him. He seemed rather amused. He'll probably make heavy jokes about it."
" What shall I talk to him about ?"
" You can try cricket or rowing, but he knows nothing about either. Egyptology is his subject, and Marsala. You'll like that. I'm only allowed half a glass. It's sweet, but damned strong."
Denis felt a little uncertain about Lord Periton. He had never spoken to an earl and he wondered whether he addressed him as your lordship, or m'lord, which sounded too much like servants, or just sir, like Wren. It was a nasty problem and so was the servant question. His mother had sent him one pound for tips. She had written,
